I got some photos of the city that I tried to send earlier, but I guess the
images were too big to include in the email. Here's a link instead:

I had a chance to walk around 5th avenue this week, and I was happy to see
that, although things aren't quite back to normal, they're really looking
up. This area is actually one of my favorite places to stroll in the city.

Sak's Fifth Avenue, is open again, and I was tempted to walk in, but I was
a little low on time. I also spotted a long line at the 5th Avenue Apple
store, and the famed Bergdorf Goodman window displays are back. Even
Tiffany's is looking as glamorous as ever, although I think their breakfast
service is still closed.

I'm glad to see people are concerned about Manhattan, because it's a
wonderful place. I think it's going to be alright. No pictures, but I've
been downtown around the Village and the LES side a few times, and the
streets are packed with outdoor diners. In some ways, the city is more
vibrant than it ever was.
