    Promoter

    The following is the text and the paragraph after the text is the question:

    New York is the concentrate of artand commerce and sport and religion and entertainment and finance, bringing to a single compact arena the gladiator, the evangelist, the promoter, the actor, the trader, and the merchant. It carries on its lapel the unexpungeable odor of the long past, so that no matter where you sit in New York you feel the vibrations of great times and tall deeds, of queer people and events and undertakings. Ö From Here is New York by E. B. White

    The question is the meaning of promoter? I tried to pair titles with areas, for example evangelist with religion (see the color fonts). But I found it hard to link promoter with any area. Maybe the writer didnít write in pairs. Your idea is appreciated.

    Re: Promoter

    I don't know if it was a typo in the original text, but artand should be art and, which will then give you six each.
