NO CONDITION IS PERMANENT [Episode #333 ~ 12-17-22]

Pictured: The Feelies.

The ghosts of Manhattan are not the spirits of the propertied classes; these are entombed in their names, their works, their constructions. New York’s ghosts are the unresting souls of the poor, the marginal, the dispossessed, the depraved, the defective, the recalcitrant. They are the guardian spirits of the urban wilderness in which they lived and died. Unrecognized by the history that is common knowledge, they push invisibly behind it to erect their memorials in the collective unconscious. The myth of the city insists on progress, bigger and better and more all the time; nostalgia of the usual sort is founded on regret for vanished coziness and civility. The city’s unconscious is the repository of all that these two outlooks omit, the repressed history of vice and crime, misery and graft, panic and despair, chaos and saturnalia. While New York has adopted as its nickname the Big Apple, that hopeful tag given it by jazz musicians when their art was remuneratively in fashion, the city might more truthfully answer to the twin appellations by which it was known to tramps: the Big Smear and the Big Onion.
