II: Consult The Wizard

The closest thing to a temple on the river Harry could think of would be the gazebo in FDR Park. It was as good a guess as any.

He put on a warm jacket and took a bottle of water and a flashlight with him to the subway station, where he boarded the train. This would be a much nicer trip during the day, he thought. He hadn't been to the park in years, but he remembered it being very pretty.

As the train slowed four stops later, the engineer made an announcement.

"Ladies and gentlemen, there has been a breakdown on the line ahead. All passengers must leave the train at this station. There are connecting buses that can help you reach your destination. Please exit to your left when the train comes to a full stop."

Harry got off the subway car, feeling as dazed as the other passengers. Well, this was great. Obviously, he was going to have to start digging through bus schedules now. But which direction?

Should he try to continue on to the park?

Or just figure out how to get back home?
