When I first joined DC Comics back in the summer of 1973, one of the first jobs I had was helping pack up as the company made the move from 909 Third Avenue to 75 Rockefeller Plaza. Over the next twenty-five years, the company moved three more times to 666 Fifth Avenue, then 1325 Avenue of the Americas, and finally to 1700 Broadway. Each of these moves took us further west across Manhattan and we joked that we would eventually end up on a barge in the Hudson River. Luckily for them, since I left in 1998, they have stayed put.
In 2000, not long after I joined the staff at Preload, the company moved from Garden City, NY, where they'd been for decades, to Hauppauge. During my brief six-month stint as a consultant with Accordant, they moved their office a couple of towns over in New Jersey. Even the Johns Hopkins CTY program relocated the site I was working at, from Goucher College in Towson, MD across Chesapeake Bay to Washington College in Chestertown.
So I guess it shouldn't come as a surprise that Combined Resources Interiors, my current employer, will be moving -- across the road and up the block -- in a couple of months.
I wonder, does this make me a mover and a shaker?
