In this day and age, we question the “undergroundness” of anything.
“Unlike European cities, New York City has no regard for the past when it’s inventing its present. It’s an immigrant city. It knocks itself down and rebuilds itself. The truth of New York is that it reinvents itself every 10 years; you can be living in the city and suddenly realize you don’t know it anymore. Kids might find out what happened here but more often they come with the shit in their mind and just do that. New York is exciting in that way.”
