There is a big plain where New York puts its ashes and the workers shovel it for a job. At one point Tom forces nick to get out of the train and walk. He takes him to George Wilson's garage. Tom then takes them to New York City to a apartment. They have a party in the apartment. Tom broke myrtles nose because she wouldn't shut up about daisy and it pretty much ended the party. Which makes nick leave with Mr.Mckee.
