Seventh Avenue and 19th Street

“André Breton says in the Second Surrealist Manifesto: ‘Everything tends to make us believe that there exists a certain point of the mind at which life and death, the real and the imagined, past and future, the communicable and the incommunicable, high and low, cease to be perceived as contradictions.’ 
            That point is somewhere in the labyrinth, and the labyrinth is the city of New York.” 
            —from Dime-Store Alchemy: The Art of Joseph Cornell by Charles Simic
