WE'RE in recovery mode here in New York City. Yes, there is an undercurrent of sadness, and a tinge of fear about unknown perils. But there also is a most amazing, enthralling power -- a profound sense of community. Those of you who came for Legal Tech New York know exactly what I mean!
It is a wonderful time to be in Manhattan. The days are deliciously crisp. There is gentleness and kindness, and strength and resolve in the air. Flags fly everywhere. We thank every cop and firefighter we see on the streets, and try to buy coffee for the sanitation workers who sit in their big sand trucks guarding the perimeters of our mayor's home. Our Yankees, like our city, come from behind and rally. It is a truly magical time.
So do not be afraid. Get on a plane again. Come to New York. Come see a Broadway show. Come savor our restaurants. Come be inspired by our museums. Come enjoy the good company of your friends. Our skyline has changed, but our hearts are solid and our city forever strong. Come experience it.
