I was in New York City a few weeks ago. That was my first visit since 1998. On the morning of my first full day there, I took the subway to the Fulton Street Station. I emerged into a hot and humid colossus of towering buildings and streets with barricades. I wandered around with map in hand, turned a corner and then I saw it. I paused and took a photo.
America is Great!
It never stopped being Great!
