Day 2 Living in NYC

Today is my first day working in our NYC office on Lexington Avenue.  Since I am living a few blocks north east of the office, there are a few walking routes I can take.  Today, I walked west on E 44th Street to Lexington and turned left.  I found a few restaurants, cafes, and bakeries I want to try.  I have my own office with a window facing east and a partial view of the Empire State Building.

My first day at work was nice.  We had a farewell lunch at a Chinese restaurant, Mapo Tofu, a block from our office.  One of my colleagues is done with his assignment in NYC and will go back to Japan next week.  It started raining in the afternoon.  Luckily I brought an umbrella with me.  On the way home, I stopped at CVS to grab a few items and went to Crumbs for a red velvet chocolate cupcake.  I had Chinese leftover from last night for dinner, so my first 3 meals in NYC were all Chinese.  I will eat something else tomorrow!

On the way home, I took this picture of the Chrysler Building.

Day 1 Living in NYC

Everything went well today on my first day living in NYC.  I had to get up really early to catch a 7 AM flight but all my flights were on time.  I got upgrade to first class on my first leg from San Jose to Houston.

Here is a picture of somewhere in the west on the way from San Jose to Houston.

The apartment is very nice and clean.  The building is called Beaux Arts and it is only a block from the UN on 44th Street between 1st Avenue and 2nd Avenue.  I am on the 12th floor with a view of some office.  It is going to be my home for the next two months.  There is a Duane Reade a block away and there are a few restaurants on 2nd Avenue.  Tonight I stopped by Duane Reade to get milk and a Brita pitcher.  I had a Chinese take out from Shih Lee on 45th Street.  I tried their Kung Pao chicken and it was pretty good.
