Bravo, NYC, UPS (and Citibike)

So here is the windy-day photo my 86-year-old dad took of me two weeks ago standing in front of something like 100 Citibikes in New York City between the two historic original buildings of Metropolitan Life Insurance Company (now known as MetLife), where I walked from Penn Station with him (it was his old commute…
