10 years ago I was on a flight from Hawaii to San Jose, CA when the first plane hit the WTC. We were lucky we were allowed to land. Watching events unfold in the office it was clear I wasn't going to make the NY leg of my trip and set about letting concerned family know I was OK. 18 months later I moved to NYC.
+Dave Shea Here is an Elevation view of my My Tracks captured commuting and riding around Brooklyn and NY. I'll post to Flickr and add some comments but the loop on the bottom left is Prospect Park in Brooklyn, The heavy line angling upwards and to the right in the middle is Manhattan Bridge and then off to the right is the East River Parkway in Manhattan. The elevation profile gets all funky around where I commute to which is roughly 47th Street between Lexington and Park Avenue.
Cousin Tom Jonas had his first AFL game with Port last night and had the task of playing on All Australian and Hawthorn captain Luke Hodge. By all accounts he had a very good game although Port got pumped. I was in a hotel room in South Hill, Virginia travelling down to North Carolina for a holiday with Mum.
