In no other city in the world are there so many men, both black and white, lounging about, so obviously poverty stricken, devoid of both work and hope. We still remember our shock when the taxi driver, an active member of his union, taking us from Kennedy Airport to our cheap hotel in Manhattan advised us, on discovering we were Limeys, "to double-lock your hotel room doors and, whatever else you do, don't take your wife and grand-daughter out after dark."
