It had been a whole 7 years since I last visited NYC and our building there, so I was way overdue. I had been waiting for a business reason to go, but ultimately it was Jennifer going to nearby DC for work that gave me an excuse to fly to NYC and meet her there. I spent the beginning of the week there at work, hosted by Daniel (thanks Daniel).

All in all, it was quite nice, I wouldn't mind working there.
