After attending the ICSA conference in Ft. Lee, New Jersey (7/1/2010 - 7/3/2010), a few of us stayed over to celebrate Independence Day in New York. We took a boat ride and then watched the Macy's fireworks at night. During the day I met up with another person from the conference and walked all over Manhattan. Here are a few photos from the day, and a few taken of me. I was a blatant tourist, which may be what prompted people to ask if I wanted my photo taken.

After the boat ride, I met up with Regine, from the conference, and we set off for the Met to see Picasso. This is Times Square.
