A Southern City with a southern pullulation of life;
Yet with a northern winter imposing a control;
The whole Nordic energy and sanity of living
crisply enforcing its authority for three or the four seasons
on the violet airy babel of tongues and races;
This tension gives New York its unique concentration
and makes it The Supreme Metropolis Of The Present.
A Haven as cozy as Toast;
cool as an Icebox;
and safe as Skyscrapers.

Irish Born Dramatist
Living in California adds ten years to a man's life.
And those extra ten years I'd like to spend in New York.
Greatest Baseball Fan
I wonder what it is in the New York air
that enables me to sit up till all hours of the night
in an atmosphere which in London would make a horse dizzy,
but here merely clears the brain.
When it's three o'clock in New York, it's still 1938 in London.

The present in New York is so powerful that the past is lost.
Essayist of Unusual Merit
In New York the Earth seems to spin more quickly round its axis.
A Splendid City.
A great money centre.
San Francisco with the mines above the ground.
Creator of the Word Anæsthesia
Grid Is Good.
This is the first sensation of life in New York –
you feel that the Americans have practically added a new dimension to space.
There is no place like it;
no place with an atom of its glory;
pride, and exultancy.
