Three confused tourists, standing with a fold-out map of NYC, on the corner of Joralemon + Clinton, in Brooklyn Heights. I offer help.
“Are you guys lost?”
“Do you know where Montauk is?”
“Montauk? hmm… you’re kinda far from there…” (Montauk is a town in far-away Long Island)
“oh” — they keep pointing at their map.
“let’s see the map”.
and lo and behold, or “ahem, duuuh!”, they’re pointing at MONTAGUE street, two blocks away.
Perhaps I should’ve sent them to a bookstore?
Three tourists diverged in a wood .. the Romance!
