I recently spent a few days in NYC. It’s always a good time. After taking the train in from Katonah, we plowed our way through Grand Central.

New York is on all of our minds this week. My thoughts and prayers are with everyone who’s been affected by Hurricane Sandy. NYC a great city filled with a resilient community.

I know this is a rough time, but we’re all on your side. We love you, New York!
