Meanwhile, the work of restoration of the shattered city, which then occupied
lower Manhattan, went on slowly. Business in all occupations kept pace and
slowly revived. Citizens with creativity and manpower to build New York up
rallied as best they could while great men who had helped to bring about
American independence were among the farsighted visionaries who would bring

noteworthy to ...

3 The City in Fragments The life of a village is narrative [ . . . ] In a city the visual
impressions succeed each other, overlap, over-cross, they are 'cinematographic'.
(Ezra Pound 1921) I sensed a new reality in the detail of a machine, in the
common object. I tried to find the plastic value in these fragments of modern life. I
rediscovered them on the screen in the close-ups of objects which impressed
and influenced me. (Fernand L├ęger 1923)1 The shattered city In Alberto

The Shattered Screen S. Craig. implications of spectacle. The fascist regimes in
both Italy and the Third Reich raised the political art of spectacle to new heights.
Leni Riefenstahl and Albert Speer are inescapable phantoms in the streets of
Berlin; the trace of their unique and monstrous vision of the Nazi body politic and
the Nazi city necessarily permeates any later cinematic representations of the
former capital of the Third Reich, especially in the rubble (inevitably ironic, in this
context) ...

But he ignored the pain and slammed more and more of his city, of himself, into
the hole beneath him. The city crashed and crumbled, became like gravel as it
smothered the groaning creature and smashed it flatter and flatter. Compressed it
down into the cavern floor and built upon it a new land of impenetrable pieces
that became thicker and thicker as Hines brought more of his city to bear. Before
he realized it, the shattered city had risen almost to meet him, and the thing below

'The Vril themselves are easier to deal with than the Ubermensch,' Hoffman
agreed. 'We still have to find them,' Guy said. 'Or let them find us,' Hoffman
suggested. 'I can feel them inside my mind. If I let my guard slip, they will see
what I see. They will know where I am.' 'Draw them to us?' Leo said. 'Exactly. And

The night sky was cloudless, and with so much artificial lighting gone from the city
of Manhattan, the stars shone more brightly, as if to make up for the loss. Not
many of the citizens of the shattered city took notice. They were too busily
occupied with the immediate needs of food, shelter, and hoping for the possible
promise of surviving another evening, all for the privilege of worrying about those
things again the next day. Impenetrable darkness reigned supreme over the
