Upper East Side Plane Crash
I often stay in the lower east side, the village or Chelsea when I 'hang' in New York although lately I've been mixing it up. I usually start in mid-town and then it depends on my mood, which friend is in town and what I plan on doing. A few of these friends now live in the upper East Side, which is where the plane crashed into an apartment building this week.
I was in a meeting at the New York Times near Times Square when it happened, so our colleagues learned about it at the same time we did... those I spoke to didn't jump to conclusions as I had expected and were more likely to think it an accident, which limited aviation experience can easily lead to.....this week's crash sadly killed Yankee baseball pitcher Cory Lidle and his flight instructor. I have several friends with their pilot's license and often think about 'the chances.' The mayor who apparently also flies, is adding his own personal experience to the investigations.
