  2. No truer or beautiful words have been written If you ve spent your life in NYC this book will bring you to tears It perfectly explains what it means to live here and why people do it Written in 1948 but the true beauty is it is still all true in 2018 and likely continue for generations to come


  3. A beautiful book about one man s nostalgic walk through New York City that makes you nostalgic for an era when a man like White was walking nostalgically through the streets of New York To be read with Colson Whitehead, with a break to listen to some Talking Heads and Blondie.


  4. EB Whites book is a long reflective essay about New York While a short book a touching reflective book of observations about the people and the city There are still many truths to this essay today.


  5. I liked this book once it describes a NY that still is, in some ways, the same, even if it was written so many years ago A jewel for nostalgics and lovers of this great city as it was and as it is.


  6. I ve loved E.B.White s writing ever since a grade school teacher read Charlotte s Web aloud to the class, chapter by chapter His writing is unique, clear and memorable, whether he is writing about what he sees out his window or about life in New York walking down a busy sidewalk, masses of people all around him While life in New York has changed significantly since E.B White first wrote the words contained in this book, readers will find his writing also timeless in spirit and inspirational in i [...]


  7. E B White is an icon Strunk and White taught me to write Charlotte s Web taught my children to love books Here is a stroll around Manhattan from a man who loves it with all its flaws I knew a New York forty years later than Mr White s, all changed, yet all the same And for its soul I loved it too.


  8. My birth place of NYC came into focus in a way I d never known I adore EB White His wriitng is impeccable, funny and insightful.I now have his entire collection and each one makes a perfect gift to anyone with a sense of humor and a love of language.



  9. I loved reading this short book whilst on my fifth visit to New York Written in 1949, I had not heard of it until 2014 Highly recommended Also recommended is Writing New York a literary anthology 1039 pages Phillip Lopate, editor.
