Why does it seem so inviting? It spells the thrill of first nighting, glittering crowds and shimmering clouds in canyons of steel, they are making me feel...I'm home.
Autumn in New York...the gleaming rooftops at sundown, it lifts you up when you're run down. Greet Autumn in New York...it's good to live again!
-Vernon Duke circa 1934 (paraphrased)
