The joys of walking the streets

I love to walk the streets observing and experiencing. Recent I discovered the French term "flaneur" which loosely translated, means "someone who walks the city in order to experience it". I was wondering if anyone knew of any essays (historical or modern) written about the joys of being a flaneur or a flaneuse?
