there is never going to be any pressure on me to transfer my loyalty and affection from the grea open spaces of the middle wes to that human ant hill called Gotham At this point I turned to my dictionary to learn what the word Gotham really means I found a definition in two parts 1 The city of New York 2 An English village proverbial for the foolishness of its inhab itants I cant resist a temptation to suspect that the two versions are equally applicable to New York I cant persuade myself to believe that anybody in full possession of his senses would choose living in that vertical metropolis over living in a less crowded locality If I stopped my visit here you might gain the impression that 1 dont like New York and that would be untrue The truth is that I thrill to an occasional visit there Its just that I wouldnt want to make New York my permanent residence I never have such a deepseated appreciation of my hometown as when I return from Gotham WHAT I LIKE ABOUT
