E. B. White, essayist for "The New Yorker" for nearly six decades, began his career in 1925, completing "Charlotte's Web" in 1952.

He personifies New York as "a battered tree, long suffering and much climbed, held together by strands of wire," drawing from a willow growing in the Turtle Bay Garden.

In "Ode to Manhattan," he adds, ''In a way, it symbolizes the city: life under difficulties, growth against odds, sap-rise in the midst of concrete and the steady reaching for the sun.''
