WHEREAS, Michael Garin (“Garin”) is a tunesmith, poet, singer, songwriter, raconteur and bon vivant who serenades the virtues of New York City in both music and verse on a daily basis; and

WHEREAS, Garin writes and publishes a new poem every day to a huge and appreciative audience, celebrating all that is quintessentially Manhattan: wit, style, and a sophistication born of New York’s ever-changing melting pot of diverse cultures; and

WHEREAS, we who read his verses over our morning Café Bustelo and Cronut are enlivened by Garin’s odes to New York City and wish to express our gratitude in a concrete and meaningful way;

WE, THE UNDERSIGNED, do hereby request that the title Poet Laureate of Manhattan — or at the very least, Poet Laureate of 54th Street — be bestowed upon him, in recognition of his irreplaceable and vital voice, which marries the classic sophistication of Café Society with the exuberance of the diversity of the modern City.
