DS23 Research trip, Part 3: New York

times square - Copy

A few of us continued to New York for another 3 days. It’s a wonderfully eclectic city with lots of interesting architecture. We walked a lot, saw a lot, and I’m certain that I would need another few weeks to cover everything still. I’ll just post some highlights here.

The JFK main concourse is still under construction, but we just about got a glimpse of the iconic shape from the airtrain:
