Everywhere, Always is a story about a child's relationship with his home: Brooklyn. He asks us to search for him, but as we search, we look with fresh eyes at the magical city he sees. In the spirit of Whitman's passionate odes to his hometown, the little boy finds himself in all the places he visits— in the parks, at the beach, in the flea market, at the playground, at the zoo. It's as much a story about finding a little boy in Brooklyn as it is about finding Brooklyn in a little boy.
