As they accomplished their nearly silent traverse, the setting sun made the glass palisades and grey towers a shield of gold. And as its light disappeared from all but the tips of spires which glowed like smoldering punks that children used to signal by, the city turned on its cool chemical lamps: a hundred million flashes, fires, and hearths racked on mountainous towers with castled tops . . . Next to this enormous harrow of gold and green, of shining ledges and needles, the ships tied up at North River piers looked like insects running along the crack of a baseboard.
