Gatsby nighthawks

Ann Althouse's Gatsby sentence selection today is this:

At the enchanted metropolitan twilight I felt a haunting loneliness sometimes, and felt it in others — poor young clerks who loitered in front of windows waiting until it was time for a solitary restaurant dinner — young clerks in the dusk, wasting the most poignant moments of night and life.

That haunting loneliness is seen at museums.
