Dollars and Cents

14th Street subway station

"New York does not so much as stop to reckon what happiness truly is; she is too engrossed with her materialistic provender, the things which can be judged in terms of dollars and cents, which can be bought and sold; the things which, in the destroyed or partially destroyed cities of Europe, the very hand of distraction has proved to be but ephemeral baubles after all."
Dana Gatlin, McClure's Magazine
