about this book

Perceptive, funny, and nostalgic, E.B. White’s stroll around Manhattan remains the quintessential love letter to the city, written by one of America’s foremost literary figures. The New York Times has named Here is New York one of the ten best books ever written about the metropolis, and The New Yorker calls it “the wittiest essay, and one of the most perceptive, ever done on the city.”

“Just to dip into this miraculous essay–to experience the wonderful lightness and momentum of its prose, its supremely casual air and surprisingly tight knit–is to find oneself going ahead and rereading it all. White’s homage feels as fresh as fifty years ago.” –John Updike

“New York was the most exciting, most civilized, most congenial city in the world when this book was written. It’s the finest portrait ever painted of the city at the height of its glory.”–Russell Baker
