really liked it

It's obviously timelessly good. Here are my 'but's: By the time I got to this essay much of the content had been made into cliches - there was almost nothing left I hadn't heard before. The other but is that even though E. B. White claims otherwise, much of what he discerns for New York goes for any truly cosmopolitan metropolis. Neighborhoods as little cities? check. Everything changes but the city's spirit? check. Inhabitants have to be tolerant or else the city will explode? check. People coming from all over to chase dreams and be closer to their giants? check. It's very easy to be very lonely despite the crowds? check. You get my drift.
