“City limits” is the first chapter of the book “The Colossus Of New York” by Colson Whitehead. Throughout the chapter, Colson used first person point of views to show how New York City were. Colson make the chapter as he talking to readers, He lives in New York city because he born here. He compare the old New York and now, also mention how people’s live were. From Colson’s view of New York city, he sees many thing differently than what I see. What he thought is never listen to what people tell you about the old New York, because it will change your point of view, and make it not part of your New York. This made me want to see what Colson really see about New York.
