Nighthawks

 

There were about 7.3 million people here in NYC in 1990. Now we're at over 8.2 million - essentially double that of LA with about 14% more adult females than adult males.

That's a lotta people.

Funny thing is, the names and faces change, but the people are always the same.

The painting above is of the Village in '42, just after Pearl Harbor.

You got the counterman and the nighthawks - the people out on the hunt for something, someone. The counterman's looking out. He's probably got a family, so he wants to go. The nighthawks?

They got no one. They're in no rush.

But look close. There's no door; no windows that open. They're on display. It's all justa show.

And the guys? It's the same guy. A copy of a copy.

I had some stories of the weekend but I told them to you already.

Nighthawks all got the same story; millions of people but few connections.

Yeah, we're all here in the same place, the same joint.

But in 8.2 million different worlds.
