• Today in #wny11 @cpatell is lecturing on E. B. White's "Here Is New York," with detours thru Jane Jacobs, Robert Moses, & Marshall Berman. #
  • We're starting, though, with the opening sequence from THE CRUISE, which pays homage to White's "Here Is New York" as Levtich hits GV. #
  • Levitch locates himself in relation to Greenwich Village's literary history: 3 blocks from this, 2 blocks from that, much as White does. #
  • Some highlights from THE CRUISE here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OSb4UMeomGg #wny11 #
  • .@cpatell: Levitch and White use the local and particular as they attempt to make an abiding statement abt New York. #wny11 #
  • To get at White's definition of N Yorker, @cpatell reminds us of debate between Lazio and H. Clinton: http://cornellsun.com/node/935 #wny11 #
  • .@cpatell blogged about Clinton/Lazio/Pataki here: http://ahistoryofnewyork.com/2009/01/here-is-writing-new-york/ #wny11 #
  • A few other E. B. White posts from our blog from past years: http://ahistoryofnewyork.com/tag/e-b-white/ #wny11 #
  • .@cpatell reminds our students that he's brought up White already in #wny11 in relation to Melville and Hopper: http://bit.ly/evTsuH #
  • White locates himself in rel to NYC lit on p 20 of Here Is NY: @cpatell illustrates White's paragraph w/ slides of folks White notes. #wny11 #
  • .@cpatell suggests White needs the past's "unexpungeable odor" in order to belong to the modern city. He feeds off past scenes. #wny11 #
  • How many of the writers White lists as his predecessors and heroes are now part of NY's lost past? #wny11 cc @jeremoss #
  • .@cpatell reading White's famous passage about "three New Yorks": http://bit.ly/4O8U0w Makes fun of @_waterman for being from AZ. #wny11 #
  • .@_waterman would like to remind @cpatell that he'd better be careful, since I'm the one running the Twitter machine this morning. #wny11 #
