Inspired by metazen's riddles, I have decided to create my own

To my west are a bunch of crooks

To my north is a special fruit

To my east is somewhere everyone wants to be

To my south is a giant clock

I am in a collection room

Where am I?

Hint 1:

Look at the tags

Just some guesses:

To my west are a bunch of crooks

This could be reference to City of Thieves, which is a book about Leningrad (St. Petersburg). Also makes sense with the addition of Story tag to riddle

To my south is a giant clock

If West is correct, this could be the Kremlin Clock to the south.

  • $\begingroup$ Nice try, but none of these are correct. $\endgroup$ – PotatoLatte Sep 28 '18 at 20:26

I think you are in :

The British Museum

Based on:

To my south is a giant clock - Big Ben
To my west are a bunch of crooks - HM Prison Wormwood Scrubs

It will be very difficult to fin what you are if the only thing we know is that you are in a collection room. There can be many thing collected there

$\endgroup$
  • $\begingroup$ Ah, but that is also a hint. You should be able to tell what you are based on where you are. (So it is incorrect) $\endgroup$ – PotatoLatte Sep 30 '18 at 23:23

Another try:

I am in a collection room

The maps in the NY Public Library Map Collection Room

To my west are a bunch of crooks

Wall St.

To my north is a special fruit

Reference to the Big Apple?

To my east is somewhere everyone wants to be

Not sure...

To my south is a giant clock

Clock Tower Building

$\endgroup$
  • $\begingroup$ You are right about the fruit being some sort of apple, but not the big apple, sorry $\endgroup$ – PotatoLatte Oct 11 '18 at 13:08
  • $\begingroup$ Are all the other parts incorrect as well, then? $\endgroup$ – MetaZen Oct 11 '18 at 17:16
  • $\begingroup$ Yep, it is somewhere in a book $\endgroup$ – PotatoLatte Oct 11 '18 at 17:21
