Happy New Year! It does not feel like a whole year has passed since my law firm moved into its new space in the lovely 901 Fifth Avenue building. I can find everyone's offices now, but I still occasionally turn the wrong direction when I get off the elevator. I miss being in a building with two food courts, but I've learned to make do with salads and sandwiches from Bartell Drugs (which may be why they don't have me write the food column).
