It really was a hell of a town
(And not in the good way.) I barely saw this New York -- got there late and lived in other parts of the city -- but I know that once there was this city, this hellmouth New York. I lived there at the midpoint between the worst of the Then and the mega-mall Now that the city is today. Down the road, there'll be another iteration; the genius of NYC being self-recognition in the moment, we'll know it when it is to be seen. Timing is everything, I suppose.
