Family and I had a great time. We were introducing the kids to the City, so we loaded up on old standards: Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, Wall St., Empire State Building (went up late at night — very cool), the Met, the Guggenheim, Times Sq., etc. Also, of course, trips to big toy stores. Two especially gratifying highlights for me were operating the remote-controlled sailboats in Central Park and also seeing how adept the kids are at knowing what to do in a crowded city, and in getting through subway turnstyles. Somehow, we trained ’em real good for a couple of Utah kids. I also had the chance for a cup of coffee with two friends at NYU, Don Garrett and John Richardson, and we talked about Spinoza and Nietzsche, of course.
