First Timer Impressions

Hey all! Mack here. Just when I thought Pittsburgh was a pretty big city, I've learned that there are ones much bigger! I never been to NYC before and am enthralled with the amount of people and things that they can fit into one city block.
We rode the Metro subway system today... so much different from our T. The subway rides at a very fast speed compared to the T, like a hare and a turtle. You got to be quick on your feet or you will easily miss your destination spot.
I remember growing up watching TRL with Carson Daly and wondering what it'd be like to be around those giant billboards. I got to experience that today, and took a tour around Times Square. At night time, it is an amazing site. There are Starbucks stores everywhere! (go figure) and even a 3 story Toys R Us with a working Ferris Wheel inside. I guess only in NY! haha

Tomorrow starts our first service; I can't wait! Time for some much needed sleep. 60 blocks of walking can wear one out.

Bye for now,
