Welcome to the website of To the City, with Love. What city is that? There is just one city in the U.S.A., if not in the entire world!  And which city would that be?

You might even recognize where this photo was shot. That’s right! It’s an iconic shot of Coney Island.

This photo is on the cover of the third volume of To the City, with Love — a collection of short stories that are, in actuality, love letters to New York. And now, I’d like to share them with you.

My name is Steve Slavin. I am a native New Yorker, and I approve of this website. I mean, why wouldn’t I?

I’ve lived here for at least the first eight decades of my life. So trust me: I’ve learned a few things about our city.

Would you believe that these stories are all completely true? Well, if you do, then I’ve got a bridge you might want to buy.
