New York, New York:

After Action Report on our whirlwind Edgar Week Trip to NYC. From the Ellery Queen cocktail party to the Edgars and even some sightseeing. We followed Clint Eastwood’s “Speed Zoo” example from the movie True Crime, where he jams his kid through the zoo at the speed of sound, and did “Speed New York.” And had a swell time!
