Paradox: In NY and connectivity sucks

The local wireless network seems to have lost its wires–I’m making a quick trip to New York, and my connection keeps failing. Arrggh.
I always marvel at connections failing in a big city–whether it’s a cell phone or a wireless network, I somehow (naively) imagine that millions of people, an industrial-strength MAN, and all these office buildings and apartments would make it simple to get a onto the Net-not.
