"City of the world (for all races are here)

City of tall facades of marbles and iron,

Proud and passionate city."

"When million-footed Manhattan unpent, descends to its pavements."

WOMENMEN

"High growths of iron, slender, strong, splendidly uprising toward clear skies."

"The building of cities:—the shovel, the great derrick, the wall scaffold, the work of walls and ceilings."

"Where our tall topt marble and iron beauties range on opposite sides."

"City of hurried and sparkling waters,

City nested in bays."

"This world all spanned with iron rails."

WEST SHORE ELEVATOR
PIER 7.

"With lines of steamships threading every sea."

AQUITANIA

"Shapes of the bridges, vast frameworks, girders, arches."

"On the river the shadowy group, by the big steam tug closely flank'd on each side by barges."

"Where the city's ceaseless crowd moves on, the live long day."

"Gorgeous clouds of sunset! drench with your splendor me or the men and women generations after me."
