Super Power – NYC’s Gods

To fly is really a dream and in fact, it could be very beautiful to be able to do it.

My ideal society is of winged human beings'. They form groups that stay secluded from the rest of the world. They live in faraway places like mountains, deserts or islands in the middle of the ocean, where nobody could find them or see them...

The community shares their goods, so that nobody suffers or lacks anything.

Those that commit the sin of avarice are punished and they will be tied from hands and feet to heavy rocks, so that they could not longer fly.

NYC’s Gods
The front door of what looked like an old bank, now a Gap store at 84th Street and 3 Avenue, is adorned with Greek Chimeras and, male and female Gods that symbolically represent: Commerce, Industry, Housing and Savings.

On the upper edge of the doors and windows on old brownstone buildings, I see human faces with animal characters.
