The New York International Gift Fair (NYIGF) started on Sunday morning, and I had to be there at 9:00 to man the booth for my day job. Since I didn't really want to leave my apartment at 3 in the morning, I left at 3:30 pm on Saturday. I got the the city around 8:00 pm and then it was just a 20 minute walk to my cousin's.
This was my view about an hour into the trip.
I got to the trade show on Sunday morning right on time, and it was a delightfully busy day. I've been the NYIGF twice before (last January and then again in August), but I was there for the end days which are much slower. I also worked the show on Monday, before hopping on a bus back to Boston.
