The Young People “Every year thousands of young people, many of them from the colleges, stream to New York in quest of Success and Adventure: they become clerks at Macy’s, cub writers, advertising and dress-designing apprentices; they fill the offices with receptionists, stenographers, office boys and mail boys. Some of them are defeated by the city and lapse into inertia or go home; but others, intoxicated by their new independence, become metropolitanites to the bone.” - Fortune Magazine, July 1939
