Which book character would you like most as a next door neighbour?
Fifth Avenue, Soho, Upper East Side...Sure, like most Americans, I'd heard of these places, but even as a Sex in the City fan, I never understood much about Manhattan geography until I moved to the NYC metro area.
As a Jersey Girl for five years now, I've had a chance to walk the streets, shop the town, navigate the subway (totally intimidating until after your first time) and play tour guide to a lot of our visiting family. This last part means I've been to the Statue of Liberty approximately 7.5 times more often that the average metro area resident (many of whom have never been there).
I've also had a chance to decide where I'd want to live in Manhattan. And that would be in the Village, next door to Cyd Charisse. While I might not be young enough (or old enough, oddly enough) for her to hang out with, the inner bohemian in me finds that world...her book world and its real counterpart...very appealing.
What about you? Which fictional character would you like to share fences with?
