City Limits – Summary

In Colson Whitehead’s article “City Limits,” he introduced the idea that different people have different New Yorks. New York can be considered historical or modern, however, different generations will have different memories of New York. Whitehead, being a New Yorker, he observed how New York is changing every day. Even though New York continually changing, he able to link his memory and tell us his version of New York. The memory that Whitehead has will stay with him forever, and he would continue talks about it for time to come. In the end, we may see those old buildings replaced, or those old streets reconstructed, but the memories are valuable and that will sticks to us forever. In the end, every New Yorker has their unique memory of their version of New York.
