We Have Enough

Statue of Liberty and Staten Island Ferry

"It is a fact that New York is the only city on earth today that is not out of luck, not in a state of siege, not in the clutch of evil invaders, not in tragic travail and shortage and exhaustion fighting for its life! The only very great metropolis left in a position to have everything that you expect of a great metropolis, unless it is Rio de Janeiro which I do not know … We have talent enough, money enough, liberty enough. No other city has; it is up to us."
