Manhattan #4

Fifty years from now New York will be a capital city in a united world. A city of several levels of glass and light, with building masses set wide apart and separated by tree-lined malls. It will, I hope be run by atomic power, working for peace, not war. That, of course, is the hope on which the future of the city, and the world, depends.
