Summary:

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 named Here Is New York one of the ten best books ever written about the metropolis, and the New Yorker called it "the wittiest essay, and one of the most perceptive, ever done on the city."

Included with this essay are two short poems by E. B. White: "Commuter" and "Critic," both published in the New Yorker in 1925.

"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."-John Updike, Pulitzer Prize winner and New York Times bestselling author
