In honor of Valentine’s Day, the New York Public Library has published a map of New York where all the best literary love scenes have taken place.
Of course, one of the books is The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald, with its corresponding location of Great Neck (what the fictional “West Egg” is thought to be).
Another selection was Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan, which corresponds to Gray’s Papaya in Greenwich Village.
“Why is this title a winner?” wrote Anne Barreca, a librarian in Battery Park City. “NYC’s indie rock scene + hipsters + teenage angst + exciting first dates + sarcasm + realistic dialogue = a recipe for one of the best, non-mushy romance YA novels of all time!”
