Small towns have small “cloacas” – big cities have vast ones. Funny enough, in small towns the “cloacas” are actually much more visible than the huge junk-jards of the cities simply because if a town is small it enables you to see all of it in one glance. The city does not allow for that. Therefore often times you might not even be aware of the fact that a city actually has a “cloaca” – a vast landfill-type infrastructural zone that make the city work, but given its nature is not visible. The vast subway system switching yards, like the one on Conney Island, is a good example. Every city always has a “cloaca”.

P.S. Such a beautiful way to finish this short string of New York reflections, isn’t it? J
