I have been publishing this blog for over 3.5 years and I am rapidly approaching my 1,000th blog post. However, this week is the first time that I have gone the entire week without posting something. I spent the majority of the week in New York City attending the Colliers International Office Market East Conference with over 300 of my colleagues from around the country, as well as taking in the sights of Manhattan. I just wasn’t able to find the time to sit down and type out a blog post.
The conference was a great event and since it was my first trip to New York City, and as an office real estate professional, the opportunity to view the vast and impressive Manhattan office market first hand, that also included a personal guided tour from one of my clients was quite a treat.
I feel fortunate to practice commercial real estate in a major market like Houston, but the shear size of the Manhattan skyline dotted with so many iconic buildings was breathtaking. Walking down historic streets such as Wall Street in the financial district as well as Park Avenue, Madison Avenue and 5th Avenue was quite an experience for a newbie visitor to New York City. So naturally I snapped hundreds of photos. Here are perhaps my two favorites:
30 Rockefeller Plaza
One World Trade Center
