Trent and I went to New York for an office visit / exploratory trip this past weekend. Trent had never been before, and although I went for a couple of days when I was 18 I don't remember how to get anywhere and things have changed a lot in 14 years. So we were New York rookies. The Ernst and Young office is located in the heart of times square. In case you can't find the address, the huge Neon lights that say "Ernst & Young" can help you find your way to work. We stayed at a hotel in Times square and had many opportunities to walk through it and all I can say is WOW! Where do all the people come from? Wow, could you put any more electric screens and billboards anywhere?
This picture was taken in the early morning so you will notice the throngs of people are not there. But let me guarantee you that by 7 pm well past midnight it is standing room only. So many street vendors, so many people, so many, so many, so many . . . you just have to see it to believe it. (Oh and as far as I could tell, Thursday night was just as busy as Friday or Saturday night. There are so many things to see that you cannot even notice every sign, like this for example. . .
Why did it take us 2 days to notice the coldstone creamery directly across from our hotel entrance? Ice cream . . . that is something I usually notice any time, any where . . . but not in times square.
