My week began on Sunday with some requisite sight seeing: a trip to the top of the Empire State Building and a walk across the Brooklyn Bridge with my roommates and Holy Cross friend Jack Carter. The Brooklyn Bridge, one of the oldest suspension bridges in the United States, was built from 1869 to 1883 and spans the East River connecting Manhattan to Brooklyn. The views are incredible and the structure itself is really beautiful – a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon before the work week began. This work week is turning out to be a very interesting one at the Time Warner Tax Department. Instead of a long hump day spent in the office, Ernst&Young sponsored a trip to the Yankees Game for the accounting staff and interns. Although it was one of the hottest days in NYC, a record was set in the new New York Yankees stadium with the most home runs in one game. The final score was 10-4 with the Yankees losing in the sweltering heat. It was exciting to see Jeter and A-Rod playing at home instead of at Fenway Park but as a die-hard Red Sox fan I still couldn’t root for them to win. Sorry boys. Today the theme of the “ball game” continues. Sara Keith, Kaitlin Cole and I played in the Tax Department’s softball league. We had a game at 3:00 PM in Central Park and we played the IT department. It was exciting to participate in a sport in the midst of the city even with the heat hovering around 100 degrees! Go Taxelrods!!!!
