New York in Just Under 24 Hours

Who am I kidding? I saw nothing of NYC except from the interior of a cab and my 1.2 mile walk this morning. My flight landed at 8:30pm last night local time. I made it to my hotel at 10:30pm (thanks Times Square!). I fly out 7:30pm tonight. Fun facts ensue:

  1. There’s more than one “Hilton Garden Inn Times Square”. Ask me how I know.
  2. I get in a cab in NYC and I get carsick. Every. Single. Time.
  3. New Yorkers are the most helpful beings on the planet, and I am NOT being sarcastic.
  4. If you attend a conference in NY as a female human, and you elect to wear jeans, you will be in the minority of about 4-6%.
  5. It is possible to adopt your new time zone with no issues whatsoever. Until morning.
  6. You will find a way to get clean with minimal light and low water pressure.
  7. We cut the cord on cable years ago and every time I try to watch commercials irritate me and I remember why we did that.
  8. Not all outlets on the Delta Airlines flight work.
  9. Yellow cab is feeling the pressure of Uber and Lyft to the extent that one of the main commercials in the yellow cab is how awesome yellow cab is.
  10. If the agenda for a conference you’re scheduled to attend is light, reach out to the organizers and find out who it’s geared towards. You’ll still get value out of a sales/marketing conference even if you’re a technical PM — but you have to work at it. Oh, and you get a lot of blank stares when you explain what you do.
