ITWS 2011 Trip to NYC - Photos!

The ITWS department had a blast in NYC this past Tuesday!   Special thanks to Pooja Daswani, Antonio Borges, Michael Wellner and Henry Scheuer for hosting our visit to New York City.  You all made the trip truly memorable!
Our first stop of the day was Google for a Q&A Session.
Then we got a tour of the Google offices, scooters really are used to get around the building!
Lunch at Google was delicious.  We had a huge selection from sandwiches to sushi.  
Google gave us really nice T-shirts.   Thank you!
Our second stop of the day was at Goldman Sachs.  They have a beautiful new building but we were not allowed to take photographs there.  They gave a very interesting presentation on the Internal Audit portion of the company and answered some great student questions.  Thank you to everyone at Goldman Sachs for hosting our visit!  

In the afternoon we meet up with RPI alumnus Michael Wellner and  Henry Scheuer for some great advice, history and walking tour of the city.  
Mike and Henry at the Wall Street Bull.  Most of us got a little good luck from the bull! 
Fifth year in a row for a group photo in this location.  
While on our walking tour, Mike and Henry struck up a conversation with the doorman for the American International Building, the former home of AIG.  Currently this beautiful art deco building is vacant so the doorman was kind enough to let us in to view the lobby.  Much to our surprise we were asked if we would like to go to the observation deck on the 66th floor.  Of course we wanted to!  We rode up to the 60th floor and then took a 5 person elevator to the 66th floor for some incredible views of New York City.  It was an unforgettable experience.  Be sure to check out the rest of the photos here.
View from the 66th Floor of the American International Building!  Amazing experience.  

The day ended with a reception at RED.  Many RPI almni were able to join us to discuss current jobs and gave the students a chance to practice their networking skills.  
We are already planning next year's trip and can't wait!
