New York state of mind

Originally uploaded by michael j nolan.
One of the things I love best about Philadelphia is that Manhattan is just up the road. Trains leave 30th Street Station all day and all night long and you can be in New York less than two hours later.

I spent last Thursday doing business there. Marjorie Baer, my Executive Editor from Peachpit was in from California, and we met some authors and potential authors. Marjorie took this very New York-y photo on the way to one of our appointments.

Whenever I'm in Manhattan, I feel like I'm running on extra cylinders or something. The energy level is intense, eyes ears and nose assaulted from every direction. After a 12 hour day there I got back to Philly past midnight. I awoke the next morning with a New York hangover—even though I had had only two glasses of wine with dinner while I was there. New York does that to me.
