Transcript of Mapping Holden's Path

Pencey Prep
Penn Station
As soon as Holden gets off the train at Penn Station, he has the sudden urge to call someone and seems especially to want to call Jane. He finds the nearest pay phone and contemplates on calling her but claims he doesn't feel like it and thinks about calling other people as well, such as D.B, Phoebe, and Sally Hayes, but ended calling no one and contunied on to his journey.

Grand Central Terminal
Holden then ended up calling Sally Hayes and made a date with her later that afternoon to see a movie, eventhough Holden hated movies. He dropped off his bags in a locker at Grand Central Terminal and began to worry about how his mother is going to react with the news of his expulsion. She was already quite fragile after the death of her other son, Allie, and Holden didn't want to upset her anymore.

"It drives my mother crazy when he does it. She hasn't felt too healthy since my brother Allie died. She's very nervous. That's another reason why I hated like hell for her to know I got the ax again."

Caufield's Family Apartment
Holden takes an elevator up to his family apartment. He sneaks into the apartment and looks for Phoebe but she isn't in her room. He goes to D.B's room and finds her peacefully sleeping in there and wakes her up. She was excited to see him but realized he was home two days early and must of been kicked out of school again so Holden leaves her room and calls up Mr. Antolini, which he invites Holden to spend the night at his place. Holden says goodbye to Phoebe, she loans him Christmas money she had been saving and he gives her his red hunting hat in return.
When Holden arrives to Mr. Antolini's apartment, him and his wife just wrapped up a dinner party. Mr. Antolini asks about Holden's expulsion from Pencey Prep. Holden explains that he disliked the rules and regulations at Pencey and Mr. Antolini tells Holden he is worried for him. He is worried that Holden doesn't apply himself to school enough because of other people but suggests that if they does apply himself more he will learn alot, including things about himself. Holden seemed interested in what he was saying but was exhausted and went to bed.

"Something else an academic education will do for you. If you go along with it any considerable distance,it'll begin to give you an idea what size mind you have. What it'll fit, and maybe, what it won't."

Holden decided to walk to the duck pond in Central Park to see if the ducks are still around. On the way, he becomes upset when he drops and breaks the record he bought or Phoebe and once he arrived to the duck pond he worried about catching pneumonia and imagines his funeral. He wonders who would show up to his funeral and who would care.
Metropolitan Museum of Art
Once Holden left Mr. Antolini's, he goes to Phoebe's school and leaves her a note telling her to meet him at the Metropolitan Museum of Art so he can return the money she had lended him. While waiting at the museum for Phoebe, he shows two younger kids where the mummies are and soon after finds Phoebe. She had her suitcase in hand and begged Holden to take her with him. Holden tells her she can't go with him and Phoebe gets angry and refuses to look at him so he offers to take her to the zoo.

"You're not going. Now, shut up! Gimme that bag, I said. I took the bag off her. I was almost all set to hit her. I thought I was going to smack her for a second. I really did."
Radio City Music Hall
At two o'clock Holden meets Sally and they take a taxi to the theartre. The actors in the play annoy Holden because they are almost too good at what they do and seem full of themselves. During intermission, Sally irrates Holden by flirting with a pretentious boy from another prep school but nonetheless agrees to take Sally ice-skating at Radio City Music Hall after the show. After skating, they went inside and Holden began on a rant about how him and Sally should run away together and escape from society. Sally points that his dreams are ridiculous where they then get into an arguement and Sally ends up leaving without him.

Central Park Duck Pond
After his date with Sally, Holden returns back to one his favorite places as a child, the Museum of Natural History. He reminisces on how he wishes that everything in life could be placed inside a glass cage and preserved like they do in exhibits. Everytime Holden returns back to the museum he is disturbed because he has changed and the displays have stayed the same.

Museum of Natural History
Holden promised Phoebe that he would bring her to the zoo so they walked to the zoo from the museum, Holden on one side of the street and Phoebe followed angrily on the other side. After looking at the animals, they walk to the park together now on the same side of the street when they come to the infamous carousel. Holden convinced Phoebe to ride it and he comes to the realization that no one can be the "Catcher in the Rye" when Phoebe asks him to ride with her but chooses to stand and watch her go round and round as an adult would.
Infamous Carousel
Holden journey begins on the last day of attending Pencey Prep, a prep school located in Agetown, Pennsylvania. After failing four out of five subjects, Holden was forbidden to return to the school after the fall term. Holden disliked Pencey Prep and thought it was full of phonies and false advertisment where he then decided to pack his bag, take a train to New York and leave Pencey forever.

"They advertise in about a thousand magazines, always showing some hot shot guy on a horse jumping over a fence. Like as if all you ever did at Pencey was play polo all the time. I never even once saw a horse anywhere near the place."
