Mapping Manhattan

The back page of the Times Book Review has an essay by Randy Cohen (aka The Ethicist, always fun to read) in which he invites everyone and anyone to cite books and passages from them that take place in specific locations around Manhattan. I submitted myself, naturally, as more than half of my stories in both books take place there - feel free to write to him at bookmap@nytimes.com with your own suggestions, or you know, if you're compelled to reiterate that your favorite bit by Crane ought to be on the map (it's not a lock, I don't think - he will undoubtedly get MANY submissions), that'd be cool - and add your own!
I'm so psyched to know that Harriet the Spy and From The Mixed-up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler are already a given.

While I HATE Randy Cohen, I sent my suggestion of both your books. Your stories should have the exposure they deserve, in spite of my visceral dislike of this man.

(I'd tell you why I think he's a pompous ass, but it's a boring story.)
