    While I am all about getting all up in Brookfield’s OODA loop and such, have to concur that Winter Garden is probably not where we want to be unless actively seeking to butt heads with Brookfield goon squad and the NYPD.

    May I suggest meeting at 180 Maiden over by the Seaport instead? Just a thought.
