Why Everyone Should Sometimes Leave the City

E L Doctorow, in his 2001 novel, City of God, makes this statement:

“An odd sighting on the dock, a great blue heron looking out one way, almost back with a snowy-white egret peering in the opposite direction. This is why everyone should sometimes leave the city.
