故事名称:59 The Three New Yorks
故事内容:
晨读英语美文 文化百科

[00:02.11]There are roughly three New Yorks.

[00:05.25]There is, first, the New York of the man or woman

[00:09.28]who was born here, who takes the city for granted

[00:12.64] and accepts its size

[00:14.73]and its turbulence as natural and inevitable.

[00:17.86]Second, there is the New York of the commuter—

[00:21.50]the city that is devoured by locusts each day

[00:24.97]and spat out each night.

[00:27.31]Third, there is the New York of the person

[00:30.71]who was born somewhere else and came to New York

[00:34.05] in quest of something.

[00:35.84]Of these three trembling cities

[00:38.51]the greatest is the last-the city of final destination,

[00:42.91]the city that is a goal.

[00:45.43]It is this third city

[00:48.13]that accounts for New York's high-strung disposition,

[00:51.49] its poetical deportment, its dedication to the arts,

[00:55.74]and its incomparable achievements.

[00:58.47]Commuters give the city its tidal restlessness,

[01:02.27] natives give it solidarity and continuity,

[01:05.99] but the settlers give it passion.

[01:08.43]And whether it is a farmer arriving from Italy

[01:12.01]to set up a small grocery store in a slum ,

[01:15.17]or a young girl arriving from a small town in Mississippi to escape

[01:20.38] the indignity of being observed by her neighbors,

[01:23.67] or a boy arriving from the Corn Belt

[01:27.07] with a manuscript in his suitcase

[01:29.30]and a pain in his heart, it makes no difference:

[01:32.94]each embraces New York with the intense excitement of first love,

[01:38.27]each absorbs New York with the fresh eyes of an adventurer,

[01:43.53] each generates heat and light to

[01:47.31] dwarf the Consolidated Edison Company.
