New York City for a Week

I'm in New York City this week, attending the Web 2.0 Expo. Took the Acela train down this afternoon, getting some good work done en-route. Business class is very comfortable for working. Lots of legroom and a sturdy desk. A fantastic way to travel down the east coast.

Am staying on 44th between Times Square and Avenue of the Americas. Is a good location for getting around.

This evening I took a walk up 5th Avenue to the Apple store, which I've never seen in person. It is a cool place to see live. It was incredibly busy, people and employees everywhere. I checked the store hours before I walked up there because it was after 8pm when I left. Was a little surprised to see that the store hours are listed as "24/365".

I love visiting New York City and am jealous of folks who get a chance to live in the city to really get an extended period of soaking it in. I'm not sure if reading Kottke helps me get my fill or makes me want it more.

Either way, looking forward to a good week attending the sessions of the Expo, seeing NYC, and making progress on my cases at work.
