Mensagem:  Ah, Manhattan, aye? Probably the most diverse place in the world in terms of humanity.

Co-incidentally I was recently reading a book called the "Island at the Center of the World" about the original settling of New Amsterdam and the colony of the New Netherlands. The English colonies in North America were socially and ethnically rigid, whereas New Amsterdam was very diverse and democratic from the start - reflecting the unique conditions in the Netherlands at that time. The author makes the case that what is now thought of as the American "spirit" or attitude was created there, and eventually dis-placed Puritanism as the American way. Lucky for us moderns, aye?

We will be there shortly to visit friends. The big apple is awesome once in a while. I suppose you saw the stupendous art exhibit in Central Park?
