Reflections on New York

I was in New York this week.  Some things I noticed:

– The weather was hot and humid. More like July than September.
– Three people reading TIME magazine.  Not in doctor’s offices either.
– I didn’t see many people wearing Yankees caps.  Where’s the pride?
Subway ads are mostly educational.  Learn English, public health info.
– The Airtrain rocks.  $7, no stop-and-go traffic.
– New Yorkers talking on the phone walk like tourists with cameras.
– Heads of state prefer the Intercontinental or the Waldorf-Astoria.  Their entourages stay in the W and the Marriott.
