In Case You Didn’t Know

I get to swear in public!

Hey, all. Here’s the information for the citizenship ceremony. Oh, if I haven’t told you yet: I’m swearing in!

26 Federal Plaza, 7th Floor
8:30 AM

It’s a public ceremony, so: behave. If you’re coming, meet me at the front (Broadway) entrance at 8AM. I’ll be catching the A train from my apartment at 7:20 and getting off at Chambers Street. Let me know if you have any questions.

Just to let you know, I’m not sure how much waiting around there’s going to be. This is the government, so there will be waiting.

I don’t need to tell some of you to leave your weapons at home …

I hope to see you there.

May “the American!” Anderton


New York City is probably the best place to do this. I can’t think of anywhere else that is more diverse and will have a bigger crowd of immigrants. This is probably one of the most exciting days of my life.
