FEE, NYC

June 22, 2008

So last week and this coming week, I have been right outside of NYC attending seminars at the Foundation for Economic Education (FEE, henceforth). The first week was Freedom University and next week is History & Liberty. FEE has brought in some great speakers for the week: Gene Callahan, Sheldon Richman, Paul Cwik, Ivan Pongracic, and Burt Folsom to name a few.

I had the weekend in-between the seminars to do what ever I wanted, so I took the opportunity to explore the area and then travel into Manhattan. I got to see Central Park, Times Square, Grand Central Station, and the Apple Store on Fifth Avenue. I also walked around the city of Irvington (where FEE is located). Between the cities of Irvington and Tarrytown lies a historic gothic-style mansion named Lyndhurst. I toured it on Saturday. Very neat place. ( http://www.lyndhurst.org )

I am used to having a vehicle, so walking everywhere is still a little strange to me. I will probably get used to it by the end of the week. I have had a great time so far. 

I left my camera at home, but I have my dad’s camera, so I have some photos for everyone to look at. I will put some more updates up this following week. Click the photo below to see my photos so far:
