Very cool...we aren't far from the Empire State Building. What a view from the auto show! Not much sun today but 50 degrees suits us just fine!

We found this when we walked into the convention center...the Toledo-made Jeep Cherokee will be unveiled tomorrow afternoon at 1:45. No pictures of it yet, but we were looking for one!

There is an extensive Jeep display outside the Convention Center. No Cherokees here but several other Jeep models are here. It is easy to see that Jeep has a prominent role here at the auto show.
