There is never a dull moment in New York from the second I step off the train into the throngs of people to the mad dash to the subway and push myself into the car. However, a week or so ago I had a new experience in our 58th Street showroom. We were quietly working away when the alarms in our building started screeching. Because this is New York, everyone carried on as if nothing was wrong. We all covered our ears with our hands, “kept calm and carried on”. However, it was not long before the incessant alarm was too much and clients began exiting and all the rest of us decided we should get out too. All of the building’s occupants emptied on to the street (thankfully on a warm sunny day) and before long two gigantic fire engines came flying on to 58th Street.
