Reality 7 & 5

Rohan Quine - New York - Reality 7 & 5Reality 7 & 5. Nearing Manhattan on the Long Island Rail Road. Most people I knew would have seen this train’s journey in three easy categories, if they’d thought about it at all: (1) its origin in obscure and deathly Long Island suburbs where people’s grandmothers lived; (2) its trundle through Queens, which was of course one of NYC’s five boroughs and therefore technically in the First World, but still a huge suburbia in many ways, let’s admit it (and on the few times they’d been there for the occasional party, most of the streets were called by some ridiculously confusing number system lacking any reliable street-grid); and finally (3) a wake-up during the downbeat glamour of this industrial waterfront section of Queens near the East River (shot by Wayne), all leading up to arrival in the place where life can finally begin, on that island with the skyscrapers … you know the one.
