New York is an Apparition

Gantry Plaza State Park

"New York is not a city. It is an apparition, a phantom, a vision – a frontier outpost of a territory yet to be conquered, possessed, named. Americans will have conquered and colonized another planet sooner than claim New York as the capital of their empire."
Hamid Dabashi, Can Non-Europeans Think?
