Oh my goodness Coyne, thank you so much for the shout out- and thanks to Matt for the heads up! Working for you was the privilege of a lifetime. Also, the (relative) lack of filler words in this piece is a testament to you standing in the back of my info sessions at 6 WTC and flagging every time I said “um” 🙂 ! – This ran for CNN International on a show called “Quest Means Business.”
So proud of you Concetta!!!
As our NY Peace Corps recruiter we all saw your energy and talent.
I loved seeing this. How fortunate to help celebrate 100 years of the NY subway…yes the lifeblood of the City. Look forward to seeing your museum.
I will always be in your balcony

You did a terrific interview, Concetta. Very impressive. The Transit Museum should be very proud of how well you represented them. Best-Matt
