New York 1851-1900

"The beautiful city, the city of hurried and sparkling waters! the city of spires and masts!/The City nested in bays! my city!/The city of such women, I am mad with them! I will return after death to be with them!/The city of such young men, I swear I cannot live happy without I often go talk, walk, eat, drink, sleep with them!" óWalt Whitman
