    After I finished my job interview took a ride to Zuccotti park to see how it looked. Must say it was much better organized then some of the Demonstrations that occur at Union Square Park, although it had the "kitchen sink" of multiple causes like "Free Tibet". There were some interesting signs that were Anti-Obama or Anti-either party. By in large it was clean and well kept. Looked like a small village. There were plenty of police surrounding the park and it was interesting seeing many construction workers having lunch with the protesters Also had a chance to see the Freedom Tower and other progress at the WTC. It looks absolutely beautiful. There are tons of projects going on in the area. Very busy.

    New York is a fabulous place. I'm trying to envision a fish tank that would grace a wall in a New York business. Were they marine tanks? NY people would love things of the sea, I think. They're some of the most sophisticated people on earth in the city that never sleeps. :) Well, whatever, hope things go well for you.

    It was a salt water tank..which was pretty big. They also had a breakfast/snack area with free cereal/snacks/drinks for employees. Very nice. Was a weird location, however. Near the west village. Not where I thought it would be.
