Its glory and influence are apparent when walking down 6th Avenue and observing the cement blocks that house the empire of Corporate America; down Wall Street where America’s most powerful investment banks control the world’s finances; or along Park Avenue where the nations rich and privileged reside. No where in the world is power so evident or as concentrated as it is in New York? It might not be the capital of the USA, but it’s the capital of finance, publishing, theater, advertising, art, fashion and broadcasting.
