Dunno about this, one way or the other.

A city is a place of creative possibility. What it is is constantly being negotiated.

As the T-shirt says, you can do anything in Hamilton. Strike out in bold new directions, truly reinvent the wheel, take life-altering chances and reach for a dream. Or succumb to popular pressure, create safe, marketable creative work. Maybe make your fortune. Or maybe still end up struggling to make ends meet at the end of the day. Heaven knows there are enough creative people who commute to jobs east of the city every day, because the economy here is still walking on fawn legs.

This city’s frontier moment will soon pass. It will be interesting to see what history will record of it.
