The American city should be a collection of communities where every member
has a right to belong. It should be a place where every person feels safe
on his or her streets and in the house of his or her friends. It should be a place
where each individual's dignity and self-respect is strengthened by the respect
and affection of his or her neighbors. It should be a place where each of us
can find the satisfaction and warmth which comes from being a member of the
community of human beings. This is what people sought at the dawn of civilization.
It is what we seek today.
Lyndon B. Johnson
Ventured into the city by bus the other day and on the way home was feeling bored so I took some pictures of the old buildings we passed. I love the old buildings in Manhattan.
