Holden Caulfield in NYC: An Interactive Map

Following J.D. Salinger’s death last week, The New York Times has created an interactive map that retraces the footsteps of Salinger’s most famous character, Holden Caulfield. The Times introduces the map as follows:

Trace Holden Caulfield’s perambulations around Manhattan in “The Catcher in the Rye” to places like the Edmont Hotel, where Holden had an awkward encounter with Sunny the hooker; the lake in Central Park, where he wondered about the ducks in winter; and the clock at the Biltmore, where he waited for his date. Roll your mouse over each point and read about Holden’s experience there in J.D. Salinger’s words.

Note: The map comes with an accompanying article that you can read here.
