An illuminating and energetic collection of letters about New York City curated by the founder of the globally popular Letters of Note website.

The first volume in the bestselling Letters of Note series was a collection of hundreds of the world's most entertaining, inspiring, and unusual letters, based on the seismically popular website of the same name--an online museum of correspondence visited by over 70 million people. From Virginia Woolf's heartbreaking suicide letter, to Queen Elizabeth II's recipe for drop scones sent to President Eisenhower; from the first recorded use of the expression 'OMG' in a letter to Winston Churchill, to Gandhi's appeal for calm to Hitler; and from Iggy Pop's beautiful letter of advice to a troubled young fan, to Leonardo da Vinci's remarkable job application letter. Now, the curator of Letters of Note, Shaun Usher, gives us wonderful new volumes featuring letters organized around a universal theme.

In this volume, Shaun Usher collects letters about New York City. Includes letters by Italo Calvino, Ralph Ellison, Kahlil Gibran, Helen Keller, Martin Scorsese, Saum Song Bo, Anaïs Nin and many more.
