In the summer of 1948, E.B. White sat in a New York City hotel room and, sweltering in the heat, wrote a remarkable pristine essay, Here is New York. Perceptive, funny, and nostalgic, the author'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. Here is New York has been chosen by The New York Times as one of the ten best books ever written about the city. The New Yorker calls it "the wittiest essay, and one of the most perceptive, ever done on the city."
