New York City

I spent three days in New York City (two days traveling) this past week.  As I mentioned in my previous post, my primary purpose was to attend a seminar at NYU Poly.  However, in the other two days, I toured the city, went to a Broadway show, and climbed to the top of the Statue of Liberty.  Rather than boring you with nonsensical narrative, I will let a few of the approximately five hundred photographs I took tell the story.

Polytechnic Institute at New York University--the seminar I attended here was the primary purpose of this trip

This trip was a great adventure.  While I enjoyed the fast-paced lifestyle of NYC, I must say I was glad to return to the Pacific Northwest where I can see trees and grass and more than two square inches of sky at once.
