That was some time in March-2001. With me are Sridhar and Mark (as he liked to call himself, albeit he was Markandeyan), in that order.
We went there from Chelmsford, Massachusetts. One of our colleagues dropped us by car and we'd reached there late Friday night (11pm or so I think). Return was by AmTrak (train) on Sunday evening. We spent the time in between touring New York. Saw the usual - Statue of Liberty, Empire State Building, Village, tour ride on open top bus round the town, ... Can't recollect what else.
Did I say I loved New York ? Only thing is we didn't know where to find good vegetarian breakfast for the morning.
