Earlier this week, we received a stark reminder that things change. It doesn’t matter if we don’t want them to; it doesn’t matter if we’re not ready. We can’t freeze time1. We can’t pretend things will ever be the same. The old sign is gone. So is the website. Who knows where an email sent to an old address will end up. There are so many questions. There are so few answers. But in the midsts of it all, there is still one thing we can count on:

There will always be fleeces.

“Already spotted a Point72 fleece on the train ride back from Stamford today. Instead of the black ones which we have all grown to love, 72Point is being represented by a dark blue. Looked real sharp…damn if these guys don’t know how to pick a color scheme.”

Take comfort in that.

    An orange jumpsuit with a hood would have been more appropriate.

    They are required to wear those to and from work?! I thought it was on an as/if basis.

    Wearing Point72 fleece = walk of shame

    You can't freeze time? Tell it to Damian Hirst.

    Does the logo on the sign represent four hands giving the world the finger?

    … with a hoodie, please.

    Meh, better than certain other financial institution garb that might be seen on the same train (though likely departing said train at Fordham or 125th st)

    No. It's the outline of the computer chip that is implanted in the back of the heads of all employees to prevent them from getting caught doing 'edge' trades.
