How it All Began by Penelope Lively p. 28

"Henry has lived in London for years, or rather, he has existed on a particular one of London's planes. He lives in his white stucco house in an expensive postcode, and goes forth to his club in Pall Mall, to Wiltons or Rules, to Covent Garden (a couple of times a year), to the Royal Academy and the Tate and the British Library and the British Museum."

I know exactly what she means. After college I dated a guy who was from the north side of town and I was shocked to discover that the city I had lived in my entire life and thought I knew like the back of my hand, was only half the city. I'd never gone north or east and had simply ignored that those parts of town existed.
