    Gina looked out the window

    I am wondering if my sentence sounds natural. I am not sure if I have punctuated this sentence correctly.

    Gina looked out the window at cityscape, where somewhere her boyfriend, Ivan, must have been winding his way through the thick afternoon traffic.

    Gina looked out the window at the cityscape (no comma here) where, somewhere, her boyfriend, Ivan, must have been winding his way through the thick afternoon traffic.
    See above. Interesting typo in the first line!
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: Gina looked out the window

    I am wondering how the punctuation will be in my sentence if I delete "somewhere"? Do I need a comma after "cityscape"?
