Literary New York Map

Novelist Paul Auster writes in "The New York Trilogy: "New York was an inexhaustible space, a labyrinth of endless steps, and no matter how far he walked, no matter how well he came to know its neighborhoods and streets, it always left him with the feeling of being lost."

This article propose to plan a vacation based solely around literary New York - to eat at the same restaurants, stay in the same hotels, explore the same city as a beloved fictional character. This journey may reveal a fresh glimpse of a city that is, tantalizingly, never fully knowable.

I remember long wanders through the West Village. I use to walk by a store front that displayed a life size puppet of a witch in a white dress and lace, and a blue hand carved carousel horse.
