A big city can still live in a small world. After settling into my hotel, I call up a friend from Montreal working in town and later discover, while walking with his address in hand, that he and his coworkers are in a condo that happens to be right next door. The next building! I knew they were near the Lincoln Center like me but that’s it. What are the odds in Manhattan? There I met a friend of my co-worker Dario (who sits beside me), a woman that knows my sisters, and an Image Arts alum. Later, I run into an awesome couple on the street that I met recently in Toronto. And that was the first few hours. There was 6 degrees going on all weekend. I love New York. A nice return.
