I'm in New York this week (6/10 through 6/16) for work, and have been having a blast. I'm staying in the Google apartment, and working at the Google office in Chelsea (at least I think thats the name of the area).
I'm here to work with some teams based here, and generally just hang around, but how much work can you really get done with all there is t do here? ;-)
So far I've been to an irish pub, a steakhouse, times square, and a tiny pizza place. I went to Times Square last night after a couple co-workers and I went to a steakhouse. I got to Times Square at about 11:15 pm, and it was still super busy. People everywhere, lights flashing, it was amazing. I spent about an hour just hanging out looking at the lights and taking photos.
The Google apartment that I'm staying in is great. 2bdr, 2 bath, a kitchen, living room, Direct TV, and internet access. That is all great stuff, but all I do is sleep there since I'm online all day at work and off doing things at night.
Tonight I plan to go to the top of the Empire State building (open till 2am) and take some photos of the city. They don't allow tripods though so I'll have to get a little creative to take the shots.
Well, looks like a Drum Band is starting up outside, so I better wrap this up, put on some headphones, and get some work done.
Oh yeah, pictures. (You can see all of them here: http://picasaweb.google.com/hurstdog/NYCTrip.)
