about 40 minutes or so each on a bumpy Amtrak from Roch to NYC.
Now in NYC.... I plan to sketch when I can but I honestly think I'll be too busy checking out museums, shops and Rammstein concerts :)
I missed the city but... now that I'm older... and I've hung out in a lot of cities... I don't want to live here in NYC necessarily. A smaller metropolis would be lovely though.
