actually got here saturday night, later then I wanted due to snow on the grapevine and traffic moving at a horrible crawl. Took a tour of the downtown area, whizzed through the Grand Central market, China town and finally was able to tap into someones wireless signal. Found a place to bank, checked my e-mails and have finally posted here. I just wish I could finish unpacking, while this artists loft is huge...it's full of art! well, I should be really settled in by the end of the week and will start job hunting before that. Anyway just a little update.
