Holiday in New York

The cover of the April, 1949 Holiday magazine, an all-Manhattan issue for which editor Roger Angell invited his stepfather E.B. White to write the preface. White gave Angell the legendary "Here is New York."

The photo was taken from the Staten Island ferry. Here's a recent Vanity Fair article on the long-gone Holiday magazine and the era it covered.
