New York, New York

I'm an inveterate, tenacious New Yorker -- born, bred and wouldn't live anywhere else. Your front cover video is stirring and isn't Sinatra's rendition of New York's anthem always stirring? Jon Rendell's brief photographic foray is stunning. Are there more? And Carla Maria Verdino-Süllwold's essay is poetic in words and graphics, a wonderful piece from "the beginning of time" that is no more and yet lies just beneath the streets and tracks of this City among all cities! You can't feel or absorb New York by just visiting it. You have to live there, breathe the air, listen to the sounds, how your voice changes, how your heart beats to the pace of daily life, nightly life, life at 3:00am when there's a moon over Manhattan and a wind swirling down the paths in Brooklyn. To be a citizen of New York is to be a citizen of the world.
