Last night I came back from my first visit to New York.  My take on this amazing city is that it is a diverse country within the confines of a city.  It is busy, dense, and amazingly beautiful.  It is every urban childs dream.  There is something right about walking around your corner and being able to visit your own neighbourhood restaurant, deli, and of course Starbucks. 

One night we enjoyed dinner at a Korean owned "roadhouse" listening to a kind of Korean jazz fusion, the next we travelled by cab into the Theatre District to Carmine’s (thanks Steve Chua for the suggestion), and our last night it was Thai right around the corner.  All of this, Letterman and yes even a conference.

There is just something about the energy of the city.
