The Big Science Bloggers Confab!

I’m back in Virginia after my brief visit to New York. It was really great to meet so many of my fellow science bloggers. I feel so unworthy right now! Bora has the skinny on the weekend’s doings along with copious photographs.

After our big brunch on Saturday, I decided to eschew the visit to the AMNH (been there, done that) and decided to meander around New York instead. How often do I get down to the Village? I eventually ended up playing chess at Washington Square Park, eating a truly magnificent black and white cookie at The Donut Pub on 14th and 7th, browsing in Midtown Comics in Times Square as part of an unsuccessful attempt to pick up a copy of Amazing Spider-Man number 270 (part two of the story where Spider-Man fights Firelord. I already have part one.) and finally meeting up with my parents and their friends for dinner at the highly classy Shun Lee Palace.

New York is not my favorite place in the world (too crowded, too noisy, too expensive), but I definitely see the appeal. You don’t have afternoons like that in Harrisonburg, Virginia. All in all, a great time.

    That’s exactly my view on NY.
