Lucky I left a couple of hours to get to the other end of New York! Had a mixed good sleep - up at 3.00 am, which is strangely bed time at home, and then back to sleep for a couple of hours till 9.00.
I had good intentions to work, and work out in the gym when I awoke, but luckily decided to leave early. Caught the subway from Grand Central - wow! what a station, see photo on left - doesn't look nearly as impressive from Park Avenue outside! and walked around the Financial Center - see this photo of Wall Street the New York Stock Exchange, above left.
Next went to the World Financial Center - a beautiful new building, and in getting there, past the Twin Towers site over which there is some debate. I took some photos of the memorial wall but then saw signs to say no cameras, so won't be sharing that here.
The Making Innovation Work workshop was great - caught the subway and who should I be sitting with? The Director MTA and the Innovation and Strategy Manager! More on this on the Wiki in the morning.
Have a great view of two icons out my window, and when I get a photo, the first to guess what they are will get a prize from New York (see the next posting for one, but I gave it away!).
