By the way, Blake - there are at least 3 Azimuth members based in the New York City area:

* [[Allan Erskine]] lives in the Boerum Hill area, and work near Madison Sq Park.

* [[David Tanzer]] works mid-town East, and lives in Park Slope.

* [[Cameron Smith]] works at the Bergman Lab at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York.

The first two were [planning a get-together and considering talking to people at the Earth Institute]( Maybe they should talk to you about the possibility of having occasional meetings in some room at the Earth Institute, and/or getting in touch with some people you know there! Do you plan to go back to the Earth Institute now and then? E.g., do you have relatives that you visit in New York?
