Teaser Tuesdays: Here Is New York

Teaser Tuesdays is hosted by Should Be Reading.

Grab your current read. Open to a random page. Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page. BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!) Share the title and author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

Here Is New York by E.B. White

"Manhattan has been compelled to expand skyward because of the absence of any other direction in which to grow. This, more than anything other thing, is responsible for its physical majesty."

Sure, everyone thinks of the beautiful skyscraper when we think of New York, but we forget that they were born of necessity. Sometimes being penned in inspires even greater creativity and growth.
