Ahhh! Klinkenborg gone from the NY Times?

It is a loss for New Yorkers and any who love urban life and yet require a balanced diet which includes landscapes, farms and weather. One sees a lot in the city, but is it true that a person is far-seeing only when out of the city?  (I’m not sure suburbs count)  In places like Klinkenborg’s countryside?

But if a person cannot leave the city, where?

The art museum, Central Park and Millennium Park, concert venue, coffee shop.  For me, riding the L in Chicago (during safe daytime hours) to see the city on wide-screen.  In these places we find solitude and an expanded perspective of where and what we are.

There are ways for a person to find salvation in the city.
