Three Trembling Cities

There are roughly three New Yorks... the New York of those who were born here... the New York of the commuter... and the New York of the person who was born somewhere else and came to New York in quest of something. Of these three trembling cities, the greatest is the last - the city of final destination... Commuters give the city its tidal restlessness; natives give it solidity and continuity; but the settlers give it passion.

- E. B. White, "Here Is New York"

I saw the complete first season of this webseries at a local library with the director, one of the actors and one of the interviewees present. It is an interconnected story of various immigrants in NYC and was very good. I was worried that I might not like to watch the whole thing but it went by rather quickly, ending with me wanting more. Fitting viewing given recent controversies as alluded by an audience comment. Look forward to next chapter.
