life in and around NYC is insane

a little excitement on a Friday afternoon

My office is on the 20th floor of a 40-story building.

there was an "incident" on the 33rd floor about 20 minutes ago. the fire alarm went off, and the building fire warden told everyone on 32, 33 and 34 to evacuate their floors and walk down to the lobby. the rest of us were directed to stay where we are.

it's a little scary hearing the alarms over your head, and the entire local fire department driving up to your building.

got the all clear about 10 minutes after the first alarm went off.

but people do take these things quite seriously these days.

after all, we're in jersey city. all we have to do is look out our window at the Manhattan skyline to realize why we need to take the alarm seriously.
