Battery Park. Теперь из окна вид на Hudson и статую и до офиса 5 минут пешком.

The Son of Man
уже почти 2 недели как переехали в новое здание. Впечатление пока только положительное (except commute).
Очень высокие потолки, просторно (я бы даже сказал пусто, особенно в lobby), и наконец-то есть адекватные кофе машины с latte/espresso/etc.

“In an era of faceless organizations owned by other equally faceless organizations, Bernard L. Madoff Investment Securities LLC harks back to an earlier era in the financial world: The owner's name is on the door. Clients know that Bernard Madoff has a personal interest in maintaining the unblemished record of value, fair-dealing, and high ethical standards that has always been the firm's hallmark."

Сегодня в LGA был сведителем как группа волстритных execs летела в DC... За чем, я думаю, догадаться не сложно:)

6th-Apr-2009 12:29 am - freakshow
The Son of Man
Сегодня, возвращаясь с работы по пустой трассе, я проехал почти 10 миль без рук, изредка поправляя руль коленями. Кажется, индус из книги рекордов Гиннеса проехал так 700 миль и совсем не по пустой трассе.
А еще, в связи с острой нехваткой времени и неспособностью все разумно приоритезировать, с 1го апреля я отключился от интернета. Теперь проверяю почту и пишу вот такие freak-заметки через соседский вайрлес с гордым именем belkin54g, который имеет свойство пропадать в самое неподходящее время. Или телефон, через который, кстати, оказывается не намного медленне соседского вайрелса.

Вчера отказался от продления лиза, теперь ищу новый апартмент (с конца мая). Для начала нужно концептуально определиться с районом (Manhattan или CT) и с логистикой вроде острой необходимости сохранения legal residence в CT, чтоб избежать робингудовых налогов замечательного штата и города Нью Йорк.

The Son of Man
В последнее время я заинтересовался психологией (и ее приложениями, например, behavioral finance)...

Данные конкретные readings менее практические, но весьма интересны с educational point of view.
