After the final push to get the McDonald’s Monopoly game launched on Monday night, I worked from home yesterday. Will decided to get me out of the house for a while though and we walked over to South Street Seaport to get lunch.
It was unexpected to find the Wheat Foods Council’s “Urban Wheat Field Experience” taking up a good bit of the Seaport’s walkway. We were greeted by a large wheat harvesting machine as we entered the Seaport area followed by a “field” of different wheat varieties along with exhibits and demonstrations of the various things you can do with wheat. It was a very odd thing to stumble on in the middle of the NYC landscape… especially the Wall Streeters in their suits walking through the field.
