SE Fifth and 40th
PERPLEX CITY, SEASON ZERO
As mentioned in the Perplex City Video someone had to head out to SE Fifth and 40th in New York. Turns out this was a library. The video mentioned to ask for Alice, so Bagsbee headed out and looked in the Alice In Wonderland books, and found a copy of the postcard along with a post-it note.
- The post-it note says:
LOST. The Cube. Reward Offered. around Perplex City hold the Cube as an object of reverence. It is housed in the Academy museum and has been on public display since 228AC. The last serious attempt at theft was in late April of 235AC www.perplexcity.com
- Rose also managed to get a card from the library. The library's address is:
Mid-Manhattan Library 455 Fifth Avenue at 40th Street New York, New York, 10016 212.340.0833
- uptownishnyc also went to get a card and did a further diagnosis on the book:
So had to go to work after I stopped in the library, but I did stop in. Found the copy with the card in it, and the random Celebrex post-its that were referenced earlier. My guess is they will have nothing to do with anything, but I still copied down locations and what they were marking just so we have reference if it does become important. I didn't have a camera, and the computers were taken (they don't have scanners anyway) Alice in Wonderland, A Norton Critical Edition, Second Edition, 1992 -Perplex City Post card inside front of book (not marking anything) Post-It locations: -p 117 Woodcutting of Jabberwocky -p 116 is the first stanza of that poem in mirror-image, and then in plain english p141 The Walrus and The Carpenter (woodcutting and poem [poem begins on p 140] p166- Humpty-Dumpty verse p187 - Knight a sitting-on-a-gate" poem p209 - the poem that ends the story... "A boat, beneath a sunny sky finally p 213- the addendum of "The Wasp in a Wig" the Wasps poem Honestly, feel free to remove this post. I don't think this has any relevence, but figured may as well document it before some HS student checked the book out for class. If it were relevent I would expect the same post its that was on the postcard and not some random Celebrex medical post its.
- The text post-it note looks like another advert for the Newspaper Text.
- Copy of the Perplex City Postcard was found in the Alice In Wonderland books.
