I’m proud to say, despite traveling to Hoboken, N.J. every few weeks to the Credit Union Times nerve center, I had never been to New York City before CUNA’s America’s Credit Union Conference. I was hoping it was going to live up to the hype. But got what I expected: another dirty city. I will never complain about Washington again.

There are two caveats to be fair, I must admit. I was chained to my laptop putting together this 88-page issue, so I saw little outside the halls of the Hilton New York. I did make it downtown to ground zero and a decent restaurant, but I never made it up to Central Park and points north. And, second, I grew up in fairly rural areas–my high school took the nickname “Cow Pie High.” I still live near a farm on over an acre because that’s what I want for my children. I’m a little bit country.

But that aside, it seemed New York City was a popular draw, especially with the directors. CUNA had good entertainment lined up between “Mama Mia,” the Yankees-Rangers game and the Power Up party at the Rainbow Room.
