"Most of the big shore places were closed now; and there were hardly any lights except the shadowy moving glow of the ferry boat across the sound. And as the moon rose higher, the inessential houses began to melt away -until gradually, I became aware of the old island here that flowered once for Dutch sailors eyes once. The fresh green breast of the new world.

It's vanished trees had once pandered in whispers to the last and greatest of all human dreams. For a transitory enchanted moment- man must have held his breath in the presence of this continent. Face to face for the last time in history with something commensurate through his capacity for wonderment."

~ F. Scott Fitzgerald
