Heaven on Earth

Financial District

"The streets of New York are the closest thing to heaven on earth. Here, you are not scurrying from one place to another as fast as your feet will carry you. You are on display. Without her outcasts, the metropolis would be a very dull place indeed. To succeed in heaven, you must avoid the shadows. If the sunny side of the street is full, walk in the road. And on no account learn the language. The more English you sound, the more likely you are to be believed."
Quentin Crisp (John Hurt), An Englishman in New York
