J.D. Salinger died at the age of 91 on Wednesday. The reclusive author of the wildly popular book, “The Catcher in the Rye,” sparked an appreciation for wandering and discovery through his tale about a young and adventurous teen exploring the streets of Manhattan. The New York Times has printed an interactive map of some the key experiences of Holden Caulfield’s wanderings in the city, complete with short passages that describe his interactions with each location. It’s a fitting tribute to the author and this book, which serves as a standing reminder of what it’s like for a teen to first experience adult-like freedoms and to carve his own path in life.
