In between real estate drama and getting a nasty change-of-season-cold, I had been scheduled to give a talk about social media at an event in New York. Not one to let a hacking cough and a shaky closing stand in my way, I dragged myself out of bed at 5am to catch the Shuttle.
I love emerging in Manhattan. Much as I think of DC as a city - and compared to Tampa it *is* a big city! - New York has an energy all it's own and it gets infused in me. Here are a few snaps I took in and around the Hearst Building (where my meeting was.) It's a LEED-certified, eco-friendly skyscraper - and it's GORGEOUS. The lobby has a rainwater fountain and the third floor cafe is bathed in light.
Our lunch was set on the 44th floor of the Hearst Building. I had a lemon couscous, eggplant & mozzarella sliders and mini macaroons for lunch. But, I was too gobsmacked by the view and the gorgeous day to take food photos (don't worry, there's a foodie post coming too!)
After I finished work, I met up with my college pal and Florida Girl in Manhattan (yessss... my sorority sister) Candi for drinks and food. And it was gooood. Bear with me as I pack for the move tomorrow. I'll get the pics up soon.
