I just got back from New York on Thursday night, after staying 4 days at the Millenium Broadway hotel at Times Square. Wednesday night I was out there late with some friends, marveling at the people and the activity and the happiness that the theater district brings to New York.
Then Saturday night a car bomb is discovered and defused, right where I was only a couple of days earlier. Very unsettling. I am glad the NYC police department did such a good job and no one was hurt, but it makes you think quite a bit.
