The Ecstasy


A reader:

“I was working on the 65th floor of the Chrysler Building in autumn
1969. The office windows were six feet wide and twelve feet
high…and they were sash windows, i.e., they opened.

“When the Mets won the series, the sky in Manhattan filled with paper
being flung out of office buildings. It looked like snow. Someone
ran into my office, threw open the window, and tossed a sheaf of
papers out. There were rolls of tp unrolling on their way to the
street. It was ecstasy.”
