First Paragraph:

Hey, listen. You know those ducks in that lagoon right near Central Park South? That little lake? By any chance, do you happen to know where they go, the ducks, when it gets all frozen over?

There it is: the Holden Caulfield question. Sara Cedar Miller gets it all the time.

Summary:

A cursory look at the contemporary status of the real and fictional places Salinger mentions in The Catcher in the Rye.
