Top Tourist Sites and Photos from New York City

In early November, I attended the Center for Faith and Work’s annual conference. One of the many delights from this conference was the opportunity to hear David Brooks speak on the topic of Cultivating the Cultural Imagination.

Brooks highlighted the virtue tension with which most of people live. This is the tension between living for the resume and living for the eulogy. It is the tension between success and significance, the practical and the imaginative, pursuing production or embracing paradox.

In addition to taking in a fabulous conference, it was also a pleasure to take in some of the sights and sounds of New York City. Here are some of my favorites with photos I took along the way. Enjoy!
