UN Week is once again upon us, and the leaders from almost every country on the planet are in New York City at the same time. While some may gripe about the tremendous amount of traffic it causes, just keep in mind the magnitude of the event and the fact that it doesn’t happen in London, nor in Paris, nor in Tokyo, Beijing, or D.C. This convergence occurs every single year, only in New York.
Let that soak in and keep it in mind the next time you’re stuck in back of a cavalcade of black SUV’s sirening loudly in your ears and going nowhere. Better yet, witness it from afar across the calming currents of the East River filled with bobbing, blue-lit NYPD boats and imagine yourself the landed gentry monitoring his or her holdings.
