Last night when I was taking Earnest out for a walk I looked up at the sky and saw the Tribute in Light. It was quite startling. Then I got to thinking about Here is New York.
In it, E.B. White said of New York…
“it carries on its lapel the unexpungeable odor of the long past, so that no matter where you sit in New York you feel the vibrations of great times and tall deeds, of queer people and events and undertakings.”
