"My favorite on-line reading."
—Renata, a Greenpeace Member Blog
"The New-York Ghost is comment and curse, dream and document, farce and phantasma, the beautiful of a beautiful mind and the damned of our damned Gotham. It is a depressed gargoyle and a tempestuous drummer. It is the show that never ends in Plato's Cave, the ink forming human sentences upon the pulp of pines of centuries too few to count. It is the concrete and the cosmos. It is how to lounge with life, how to dance with death. It is all. It is all." —The Face at the Window
"The New-York Ghost gives me a good feeling. I want to protect it from harm."

You can also give the gift of Believing to assorted friends, relatives, and random passers-by. And then encourage them to "Pay it forward!"
