Orange You Sad?
I'm not liking this orange alert thing.
Most days I like to take my lunch and eat it in the atrium of Citigroup Center in midtown Manhattan. It's the 44th tallest building in the world.
Well, of course now I can't. The atrium has been closed to the public this week. All of the people who work in the building have to go through a barrage of metal detectors.
Yesterday I ate my lunch sitting on a bench in the hot sun. I was surrounded by cops and soldiers and bomb-sniffing dogs and police trucks.
I was profoundly depressed for most of the afternoon as a result. #
