Luc Sante’s New York

Just as Sante begins his article in a conversational, first-person style, I am beginning in the same way in writing this sentence. One similarity I noticed between Sante’s depiction of New York and Whitehead’s is the comparison each of them makes between New York City and a movie set. Just as Whitehead calls New York “a movie set, a false front of industry” (101), Sante describe Nw York as “a cheap stage set” (ix). I think this is a very interesting point of view to examine New York City, as we are all beginning our research projects on film in New York City.
