Here is New York


In the summer of 1948, E B White sat in a New York City hotel room and, sweltering in the summer heat, wrote this remarkable and pristine essay, Here is New York.  It's of modest length, but like his other classic, Charlotte's Web, it speaks eloquently about what really matters.

Perceptive, funny and nostalgic, White's stroll around Manhattan with the reader arm-in-arm remains the quintessential love letter to the city, written by one of America's foremost literary figures.  

'... the wittiest essay, and one of the most perceptive, ever done on the city' The New York Times
