William Maxwell, the Fiction Editor of The NewYorker from 1936-1976, stated that, “A New York childhood is a special experience.”

In a journal of 1-2 pages, how does this statement apply to your life? Explain your position with no more than two specific examples from your own life.

The goal of this assignment is for you to focus on a specific moment or moments in your life that were uniquely possible because of your location in New York.

After we share a few of our experiences, we will move to a close analysis of The Catcher in the Rye.
