I just spend a week there and thought it was wonderfully diverse, easy to maneuver, and full of possibilities.
Frank Bruni did not feel so generous about last week. He began his July 2 column thusly;
Hieronymus Bosch painted a torture chamber where mutant beasts snacked on human flesh. Dante conjured fire, ice and a devil with three faces. If either man lived in New York City today, he’d know better. Hell is the subway at rush hour.

And as it turned out, there was a derailment on the "A" train on June 27. That was one day after Peggy and I took our grandchildren up to the Cloisters.
In order to set the record straight, I made a movie about New York in 5 acts. I think it pretty much covers everything.
