National Book Award-winner Jonathan Lethem: "The humans of New York seem to be rousing themselves to a collective understanding: that the great public institutions they boast of and rely upon can't be entrusted to the stewardship of real-estate developers, corporate synergists, media barons, and other ostensibly well-intentioned, deal-drunk one-percenters. Instead we need to tend our own commons, large and small — individual libraries, and the city itself. The election of De Blasio and the current outcry against the disastrous NYPL 'renovation' (scare quotes essential) represent two expressions of the same urgencies. Now it waits for De Blasio himself to close the circuit."
