Have to admit I’m not a Bloomberg fan, but this was an exciting talk packed with fascinating information which normally goes under the surface until you need it. So much idealism (which has great resonance for me), really geared to helping the people of NYC. The thought that NYC just gave their maps away in anticipation of Hurricaine Irene was touching. Rachel should have a regular 15 minute spot on NY1. Brava!
