My whirlwind work trip to New York City couldn't have been better. As guinea pigs to the conference, Ashley, Megan and I weren't sure what to expect - but we came away with some great insights that will be valuable for our work. Now to synthesize everything we learned into a quick all-staff presentation!

During one of our quick conference breaks, we ran across the street to poke into MoMa - we didn't even make a dent (there are so many floors!), but saw Starry Night, so it was well worth the quick trip. We also made our way to Times Square (our hotel was two blocks away!) at midnight after a day full of conference sessions.

But the bulk of the sight-seeing was on Sunday (conference ended Saturday night) - exploring the city with Kathryn and Pat. We walked everywhere! We walked along the Hudson River on the High Line, through the Meat-Packing District, West Village, Soho and more. We walked part of the Brooklyn Bridge and had roof-top cocktails off 5th Avenue with Central Park in the distance. It is such a vibrant city and it's really impossible to take it all in on a single day. Guess that means I'll have to go back soon :)
