New York State of Mind: Scenes From The Big Apple


We just returned from a bittersweet trip and I wanted to share a few images from our stop in New York City.

The trip included a stay in Saratoga Springs, NY, where we attended a memorial service for my father Ben, who passed away in February. While there was much sadness, it was also a celebration of my father's life and I got to see relatives and friends I haven't seen in many, many years.

We spent a few days in Saratoga before we headed to the city for a couple days of sightseeing and fun.
