Stuyvesant park. Not quite so many people a few blocks east of union square.

Today was the day. A 7 1/2 hr ordeal. We have a LOT of stuff! The movers were great though. Movers not Shakers, and I would recommend them. Plus they have a groovy name. They were careful to put my furniture and boxes wherever I wanted them, including my desk in front of the window here. When I sat down to plug in the computer (FIRST task after moving of course), I looked out the window to this breathtaking view of Manhattan. OK my eyes zoom in on the skyline much better than my cameraphone does, but trust me, its breathtaking. I am going to love working here. I call this stage "infatuation".

Just down the stairs from the trading floor . . .
. . . is where they keep the comfy shoes and swinging smocks.
Just down the hall from that is the women's comfort stop.
I bet you never thought you'd see the inside of the women's rest room at the NYSE, did ya? Just another stop on the dtour.
Yes, this proves it. We really are inside the NYSE. And we know how to get out.
No, these people are not buying and selling stock. They are raising a toast: "We're PGE, we're Enron free"!
Got a peek at the newest trading room, linked to the main floor by a corridor and ceremoniously labeled "the new room".

The repeating archways of an old train viaduct, still in use.
Which two are headed the correct way?
View of the reflecting pool (sans water) from the steps of the Rodin Museum. If you look close, you can see the back of "The Thinker" through the open gateway of the garden wall.
LOVE riding the segways! Here we are on Benjamin Franklin Parkway, where the tour started, learning how to glide.
Twin Feng Shui influenced buildings from the I.M. Pei firm
grace Philadelphia's skyline.
One of Weyland's wonderful whale murals.
In the tradition of the detourist, this seems to be the only photo of the very important new Cesar Pelli designed building. It has many different anlges, and presents a totally different outline from every side.
Looking up at the airy windowed atrium ceiling. The mezzanine levels were a place for visitors to watch the traders on the floor beneath.
The old and the new. Hey nyc, here is an homage to your famous and favorite Chysler building
No city is complete without a giant clothes pin public art sculpture. Keep looking . . . yes, there it is, next to the tall building.
Look at this cute carriage puller. He is neck and neck with the Channel 3 news van. I'm rooting for the horse.
