This was a very famous cover for the New Yorker ages ago - maybe the =
60s? -  by Saul Steinberg and was called A view of the World from Ninth =
Avenuehttp://www.billy-ball.com/AViewoftheWorldfromNinthAvenue.htm

Ha! Bet they stole the idea from the New Yorker (we'll never admit it...
grumble, grumble.. Johnny Damon.. grumble...)
Yes, this was a similar illustration. Wish I could at least remember what
publication it was.

Might have been the Globe!  I recall something along those lines from many
years ago...

There have been a lot of clever knock offs of the original over the =
years.  
I grew up near St. Louis.  When I went to college in Boston, one of my =
classmates from New York was surprised that I had never been to San =
Francisco.  She said, "Isn't it really close to St. Louis?"!  At that =
time, she had never been more than a few miles west of the Hudson, but =
she had been to Europe many times, while I had traveled all over the US =
(just not San Francisco), but had never been out of the US except for =
few miles north into Canada or south into Mexico.

Yes - I used to read the Globe almost religiously (back before the
internet.. so sad). Might have been the Globe Magazine..

So sad but so true. But in our defense (and a weak defense it is), Europe is
actually closer than some parts of the US. Didn't realize JUST how big this
country is, til I moved (and traveled both ways by car) to Arizona for a
couple of years.
Wish I could find it, though - it was a perfect example of our local
attitude. I think it showed a destination towards Europe in the
illustration, too..

Steinberg was very annoyed by all the knockoffs - no one paid him =
royalties.  He finally sued (successfully) one of the big movie =
companies for using the idea for the ads for Moscow on Hudson or some =
movie like that.  The Boston Globe version probably got pulled at that =
point.

I grew up in Wisconsin. I interviewed on the phone for a job in Reno, and in
the interview I mentioned a place in Denver, saying the to Reno people "out
in your neck of the woods". Later I was surprised to learn that Denver was
about half way to Reno.

In my younger day, a few years B.K. (Before Kids), I actually had money &
was
able to travel. Plus, airfare came down to dirt cheap back then...
Anyway, I decided to travel to Europe. Great idea. My plan was to start in
Portugal,
go on to Spain, then take the rail all throughout Europe. (Little did I
realize that the
trains in those two countries back then flew at a speed almost as fast as
running...
so I got to see Portugal & Spain, and loved it...)
While I was in Lisbon, I met a young man in the park (they always tried to
pick me up
at the botanical gardens, for some reason.. must have seemed romantic to
them.. but
I digress..) He was very interested when I told him I was from Boston - and
told me
that he thought that all the men in Boston wore 'round hats,' and carried
canes.
All I could figure is that he got that impression from some old 1940's
movies he watched.
