Had a great day at B&H on Sunday. Had a lot of fun, and met some super nice people who really made me feel welcome, and also had some great questions. David Brommer, who runs the B&H event space, says we set a record for attendance, and there were a bunch of people standing at the edges of the room.
In thanking B&H yesterday I remarked that they have turned the unusual trick of actually becoming a definitive part of our culture. In other words, it would tough to imagine NYC without B&H. They have turned a camera store into a tourist destination! You see people downstairs, glassy eyed, mouth agape, scoping the stuff on the conveyor belts, looking for all the world like they are auditioning for an role in Close Encounters. It’s wild. 64,000 square feet of stuff. My assistant Brad had to blindfold and straight jacket me and whisk me through the store on a small hand truck lest I reach for my credit cards and start lighting them up.
