The New York Times Book Review has created A Literary Map of Manhattan: an interactive site where you can roam freely to discover where characters from your favorite New York City novels “lived, worked, played, drank, walked, and  looked at ducks.” Once you’ve discovered where exactly, from the northern tip of the island to the southern waters, your favorite characters partook in their adventures, you too can travel to these locations, whip out your favorite book passage, and re-live the moment. We can’t wait to get started.

“You stand at the corner of Bleecker and Cornelia and gaze at the windows on the fourth floor of a tenement. Behind those windows is the apartment you shared with Amanda when you first came to New York.” Jay MacInerney, BRIGHT LIGHTS BIG CITY
