  • When setting your alarm for a morning flight, make sure it’s set for AM, not PM. Parked in short term and just made it. [original tweet]
  • Don’t remember so many NYC subway service notices, but managed to get to the hotel anyway. Late night pizza nearby for dinner. [original tweet]

  • For brunch, meeting up with Sabrina, old HCI/IBM friend, and her husband Steven, who turns out to work for Google! Small world. [original tweet]
  • Awesome brunch at Balthazar in SoHo. Eggs Norwegian with smoked salmon and hollandaise. We got lucky: no wait! [original tweet]
  • Visited the Morgan Library, as in JP Morgan. Amazing collection and buildings. They have 3 Gutenberg bibles! [original tweet]
  • Surprised the ice skating rink is still up at Rockefeller Center [original tweet]
  • It was beautiful earlier today, but now it’s a downpour. Luckily we have umbrellas. Yay NYC weather. [original tweet]
  • For dinner, had the best pastrami at Katz’s Deli. I always make a trip there when I go to NY. [original tweet]

  • I keep forgetting how much humidity affects how warm it feels. 70º in NY easily feels 5–10º warmer than in SF. [original tweet]
  • I also don’t feel the need to wear sunglasses in NY like I do in SF. The sunlight is much more diffuse (humidity? pollution?). [original tweet]

  • New cafe in Google NYC opens today! Gorged on fried calamari. [original tweet]
  • The theme of the new Google NYC cafe is street food. There’s an actual food truck in the cafe, serving dessert. [original tweet]

  • Tried to go to Ippudo for ramen, but the wait was literally 2 hrs. Went to Rai Rai Ken instead, which was solid. [original tweet]
  • Vince was still craving pizza, so we went to John’s Pizzeria & got half cheese half sausage. Excellent, highly recommended! [original tweet]
