Here Is New YorkHere Is New York by E.B. White

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Written in 1948, this book, really a long essay, about New York City beautifully captures the essence of the metropolis. While some of its references are dated, mentions of things that have long since disappeared, the book is about what New York means to the people who live here and to those who don't (White was actually living in Maine when he wrote it; the book describes a particular visit during a hot summer). Smart, beautiful writing.
