... you find yourself in the Port Authority Bus Terminal.

Now, you have passed through this place hundreds of times. But even when you have not been in a rush—even when you have had the leisure to consult all the directories and to stop at all the information desks for help—even then your visits have been vexed and vertiginous, because even on a calm day the Port Authority confounds your understanding with its squalor and its frenzy. And today? Today you have no time. To make your escape, you must catch the shuttle bus to Newark International Airport immediately.
