|Eric Packer on his Appointment in Samarra.|
Follow Eric on his route starting at 47th St. and 1st Ave. right by the Japan Society (yen you know). You will see the green park where he starts going West on 47th St. His residential tower is imaginary at 89 stories, (WTC had 107 stories) and is De Lillo's judgement on the Twin Towers which Eric does not pass that day in April 2000. De Lillo finished the manuscript before 9-11 and left it unchanged. The description of Eric's residential tower:
|Dag Hammarskjold Plaza at 47th between 1st and 2nd Ave|
Michael Chin is in the car, sitting in the jump seat that faces backward and there is gridlock at 3rd Avenue.
Jane jumps into the limo at 47th and Madison. She has been running in the nearby Bryant Park when she gets the call.
