A Pond That's Narrower Than A Channel

It's hard to know where New York ends and London begins, says Roger Cohen.

Well, there are the emerging Mumbay and Shanghai and São Paulo, of course, but they are still adolescents. Young and restless, so to speak.

And the way New York and London are says volumes about the Anglo-American continuum: the Channel is still much wider than the Atlantic.
