Subject: Re: The Automat
The automat is/was (do they still exist?) not unique to NYC. In the
years I lived in Philadelphia (1942-48) they were there as well.
Not to flame (exactly) but why is it so often that NYC folk assert/think
that things they cherish about their lives in the City are unique to
the City? Is it so that that "ultimate" American sophistication of NYC
is also its own ultimate provincialism?
