One of the many events scheduled while attending Blogfest2011 was the New York Design Center NYDC where, during our tour of the building, we were given a Scavenger Hunt.  We were asked to find items inspired by each of the 12 clues we were given to doucment our findings and create a blogpost of our discoveries.  During my time spent at NYDC this what I found and how it inspired me:

CLUE Description 1 - Find an item reminiscent of this famous New York City Landmark The Chrysler Building which can be seen if you look up Lexington Avenue from the Front Door of the NYDC building.
