Commonplace

“Whatever happens in New York happens in the rest of the country ten years later… If American society is going to succeed, then it’s going to have to find a way to do what New York has always done, which is to take incredibly disparate human elements, put them together, and find a way for them to tolerate each other. So the fate of New York is extremely important to the fate of the country.”

-Caleb Carr, New York by Ric Burns
