Epigraph
"City of tall facades of marble and iron!
Proud and passionate city--
Mettlesome, mad, extravagant city!"--Walt Whitman

"Make no little plans. They have no magic to stir men's blood and probably themselves will not be realized. Make big plans: aim high in hope and work. . . . Remember our sons and grandsons are going to do things that would stagger us. Let your watchwords be order and beacon beauty."--Daniel Hudson Burnham

"I'd rather be alive at eighteen percent than dead at the prime rate."--William Zeckendorf, Sr.
