あらすじ・解説

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 10 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.

Old New York

A wonderful walk around Post-War Manhattan in search of the city of White's youth even as it was rapidly disappearing.

NYC is a special place.

Relevant then, and relevant now, EB Whites “Here is New York” will especially hit home to the New Yorker & the NYer which EB has coined the “Settler.” Enjoy

Timeless New York

Wonderful prose written in 1947 but is just as fresh and real today. Amazing that in NY change is constant. Pity (but true) that in his eyes I went from a coveted New Yorker when I lived there for 20 years to a dreaded commuter now, just another foreign sassenach. Well worth a listen

A Lovely Listen for All Fans of E. B. White

The distinct style and beauty of E. B. White is never so evident as in Here Is New York. Even if you've never been to New York or aren't a fan of large cities, you will love this short listen, because it encapsulates what America is: the melting pot of the world, a place where every culture, every taste, every talent is embraced and appreciated, recognized and celebrated. What a wonderful piece of literature!

Familiar & Distant t the Same Timei

I loved it with the familiar distant past and eerie present all wrapped into one. The bones of New York remain the same as the City and it’s neighborhoods continue to change, grow and occasionally return to it’s/their roots. I have a bias for the author as the Trumpet of the Swan was my favorite childhood book.

De Urbem

White's penultimate capture of the character of the city remains one of the most literate and timeless despite its inevitable anachronisms - the product of its subject's unceasing evolution. A must read well read.

Beautifully done

Excellent narration of a timeless piece. As an ex- New Yorker, it gave me a nostalgic pang.
