The Catcher in the Rye

The Catcher in the Rye

After learning that he won't be attending Pencey, Holden attends his high school's football game and goes to his old history teacher to say his goodbyes.

Holden then takes a train to New York where he rents a room for the night at the Belmont Hotel.

Holden proceeds to spend the next night and day on the town. He dances, hires a prostitute, and begrudgingly goes to the opera.

In his last night in New York City, Holden drunkenly visits his sister while his parents are gone. There, he tells Phoebe about his "catcher in the rye" (pg. 225) dream.

The next day, Holden checks his sister out of school to visit the museum. He takes her to a carousel where he watches Phoebe ride around as he feels "so damn happy all of a sudden" (pg. 275). The story then ends as Holden talks about his future plans.

Holden returns to his dormitory where he sees his roomates, Stradlater and Ackley. After wasting the next few hours messing with his roomates and writing Stradlater's paper, Holden decides he wants to go the New York City. He all of a sudden decides that he wants to "get the hell out of Pencey" (pg. 66). With that thought, he packs up to leave.
