Summary
While riding on a bus with her grandmother, a little girl imagines that they are carried up into the sky and fly over the sights of New York City. In a fantastic daydream, Rosalba imagines that she and her grandmother take a journey over Manhattan. They fly high above the city among flocks of birds and observe the city's parks, rivers, landmarks, and streets. Splendid collages transform the city into a rich mosaic of buildings, people, and places
