Welcome, ladies and gentlemen, to Leytonstone.

“Picture this. You’re walking down the Thames river, much wider than anyone ever told you it would be, big, with boats rushing up and down and a skyline that feels like a movie set, massive building rising out of the fog, half translucent because they’re so far away. Then you see Big Ben in front of you. All the tacky associations of little toy towers and clocks and London fall away, because this thing is damn big. This thing is unnaturally big and it shocks you how the simulacra is shortly cracked open because this thing is so damn big.”
