Synopsis

Hugo Award nominated short story.

New York City is about to go through a few changes. Like all great metropolises before it, when a city gets big enough, old enough, it must be born; but there are ancient enemies who cannot tolerate new life. Thus New York will live or die by the efforts of a reluctant midwife... and how well he can learn to sing the city's mighty song.
