I do love NYC…Gosh, it’s been a year or more since I was last here, and in one day I realized the energy of the greatest city in the world is really still here. It took all of about five minutes to get my bearings, and begin to get around following a four hour meeting then another one hour all before I checked into my hotel, a new IHG concept called EVEN, where all the rooms are EVEN numbers…cool…. I even found time to catch up with long time friend and SENDERS co-founder Florian Seroussi. If you’re not using SENDERS or EVERCONTACT, you should be….
Dinner was in the back bar, called the Saloon of the the venerable Oyster Bar Restaurant at Grand Central Station. It was a random call but done without even any real planning. No app. No Open Table. Just popped in around 630 pm and had a great glass of Rose, and an even more tasty Artic Char, cole slaw and fries. Yummy. 
What I am finding though is how connected the city is. Wireless coverage is at it’s best here compared to a dozen or so years ago. Hotels now have really rock solid bandwidth. That wasn’t the case 15 years ago or more. As you walk around the city you see hot spots everywhere on the street. But I digress…so on to the news of the day….in today’s COMUNICANO.
