[Off Topic] The Big Apple

By Tim Mitchell, 2008/08/20

UptownI got my first opportunity to visit New York City last week.  I was actually sitting in on a training class in Whippany NJ, which is about an hour away (by train) from the city.  I went over to NYC for both evenings that I was in town to see the sights and generally act like a tourist.

On a SQL Server-related note, I did feel that I was cheating just a bit on the SQL BI stack.  The training class in which I was participating was for a Cognos setup...

The picture above is uptown looking at the NYPD substation (which looks more like a 1950s diner than a cop shop).  The picture below is from the 86th floor of the Empire State Building; if you look very closely at the middle of the picture, you can see Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty, and to the left of there is where the World Trade Center buildings once stood.
