Yellow brick road[edit]

I changed "Located in the center of the Land of Oz, the Emerald City is connected to other parts of Oz via the yellow brick road." because that statement is untrue. The yellow brick road is only in Munchkinland, according to maps of Oz, and so that sentence wouldn't make sense.

If anyone has any proof otherwise, let me know, and I'll gladly change it back.PantherFoxie 20:44, 27 October 2005 (UTC)

The Marvelous Land of Oz mentions a yellow brick road in the Gillikin Country, and The Patchwork Girl of Oz states there are two in the Munchkin Country. See Yellow brick road article. Goustien (talk) 18:30, 11 January 2013 (UTC)

In-universe[edit]

I am beginning an overhaul to cut out the in-universe tone of this article. Goldfritha 00:51, 27 March 2007 (UTC)

Wicked The Musical[edit]

I would create a new paragraph for the musical Wicked, but all I would be able to put is that "Elphaba, Glinda and the company sing a song "One Short Day" about Emerald City." Cheesypot 14:17, 2 June 2007 (UTC)

Journey to the Emerald City[edit]

There is a book based on the Emerald City. http://www.amazon.com/Journey-Emerald-City-Roger-Connors/dp/073520358X

References?[edit]

This article states: "Scholars who interpret The Wizard of Oz as a political allegory see the Emerald City as a metaphor for Washington, D.C. and unsecured "greenback" paper money. In this reading of the book, the city's illusory splendor and value is compared with the value of paper money, which also has value only because of a shared illusion or convention. It is highly likely that the Hotel del Coronado influenced its description in later books, as well as in the artwork by John R. Neill." Which scholars? Without references, this looks a lot like original research. Even with references, would appear to be a hard sell. And what's the connection between the Hotel del Coronado and this monetary allegory? It's not even green. Now off to tell everyone that Moby Dick is just the story of this big white fish...er mammal. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 172.131.133.236 (talk) 20:35, 27 May 2011 (UTC)

New section for the film version of the Emerald City?[edit]

I suggest that a section on the film version(s) of the city be added. Jusdafax 09:32, 10 November 2013 (UTC)
