Easter on 5th Ave

One of the common tropes used in think pieces is “Change is Accelerating” which is usually followed by “exponentially” or some other superlative indicating a “Moore’s Law” like quality.  We don’t dispute this trope but we worry that our fixation on our own moment is causing us to miss hard won lessons of the past where change also happened strikingly fast.  The two Photos of 5th Avenue are 13 years apart 1900 (left) to 1913 (right)
