New York, New York
Crowded, smelly, busy, noisy. The smell of vomit, sewerage and spilled coffee. Dams of humanity waiting to cross the street, don’t walk, walk, surge across the street from each side, meeting mid-street, swirling eddies and vortexes of humanity. Screaming, wailing, howling, growling cars, trucks, taxis, buses, garbage trucks, ambulances, fire-trucks, patrol cars. Chinese, Spanish, English, French. Office workers, tourists, ticket hawkers, delivery men, babies in push carts, dogs on leashes, joggers, cyclists.
