Woman #1: Wait, we’re in Manhattan now?
Woman #2: Yes, we crossed the Harlem river.
Woman #1: But… We were in the Bronx. I didn’t know Manhattan went up that far.
Woman #2: We were in the part of the Bronx that’s next to Manhattan, not the part that’s north of it.
Woman #1: So Harlem isn’t in the Bronx?
Woman #2: That is correct. In fact, there are signs all over Harlem saying “Harlem: we’re not in the Bronx.“
Woman #1: Really?
Woman #2: No. Most of us managed to figure it out for ourselves.
