NJ Trip



May, 2002.  It was a business trip.  But luckily, we got to mix in a little bit of fun, too. 

Rick was scheduled to go to New Jersey to meet with his boss and his group.  Since he was already going and had a hotel and rental car, my boss was good enough to let me fly up to and take advantage of the situation and meet with him and my group, most of whom are also in New Jersey.  It was a very productive trip.

The pictures below are from that trip.  Enjoy!

The view from our hotel room.  We were high atop the Somerset Marriott, on the 11th floor.  Quite the view of I-287, too!
Our room.  It was a very nice room, actually. The service at the hotel was grand.
Another view of our hotel, this one from the parking lot.
Worldwide headquarters of AT&T, located in Basking Ridge, New Jersey.  The building has been sold, however, and will be turned over sometime this year to the new owners.
New York City.  I think we're looking at some Broadway (or maybe off-Broadway) theaters here.
Times Square.  Of course, it's really triangular.  Perhaps geometry is not the strong suit of those from New York?
TKTS at Times Square.
The Empire State Building and the view from the Rainbow Room, high atop 30 Rockefeller Center.
Another view from the Rainbow Room.  The Statue of Liberty is visible in this picture.
The Rainbow Room, on the 65th floor of 30 Rockefeller Center.  If you have to ask how much it costs to eat here, you can't afford it.  It's at least $120 a person....
St. Patrick's Cathedral, as seen from the Rainbow Room.  Talk about looking down on the church....!
Sculpture done in stainless steel, above one of the entrances to 30 Rockefeller Center.
Atlas's ass.  And the rest of him, too.  And St. Patrick's cathedral (in front of Atlas, actually).   As seen from just outside an entrance to 30 Rockefeller center. 
Yes, we were here, at the Rainbow Room.  Only to visit, though....
Me, outside 30 Rockefeller Center.  We had a snack at the place where they have the skating rink in winter.
St. Patrick's Cathedral, right next to Sak's on Fifth Avenue.  Quite the contrast, huh?  I think there is a relationship there.
Madison Square Garden.  Below is Penn Central, where we took the train in from New Jersey.
Me, enjoying a caffeine infusion at the Newark airport.  We are awaiting our flight out.
