I'll have more to add about the trip to NYC. Over the weekend, the family came up, and this was the first Amtrak ride for the kids & their first visit to New York. We took a lot of pictures, and hit the sights around Midtown (Central Park, the Zoo, the UN, Rockefeller Center & the Top of the Rock, MoMA, Grand Central Station, & more).
My 10th great-grandparents arrived in this place when it was called New Amsterdam in 1662, so I have an old connection to Manhattan.
As a student, my focus was on political science and international relations. Participating in this meeting at the UN hits a milestone for me. This is another reminder of how lucky I am to do what I do on a daily basis.
