Well, blow me down!
Today’s New York Times, in the “Reading New York” feature that appears in The City section (that’s Section CY of today’s paper, for those playing along at home) ran a nice little piece on Washington Irving: An American Original. My editor called me on Thursday to tell me it was coming, but we still weren’t exactly sure what the Old Gray Lady was gonna say.
Well. They called it “charming.” (You can see it here.)
