New York City Trip Recap

December 13th, 2012 Posted in Alumni News & Events

The Alumni Association travel committee put a new twist on an old favorite.  For the past few years the group has stayed in the midtown section of Manhattan.  This year, we explored an area many participants have not spent that much time in – Greenwich Village.  Our hotel was located across the street from Washington Square Park in the heart of “the Village”.  Many commented that they enjoyed staying in a place where people actually lived and worked.  It offered a different view of the city, one rarely experienced on this trip, and midtown was an easy subway ride away.

Less than two weeks before our scheduled departure, Hurricane Sandy brought devastation to much of Manhattan and surrounding areas.  Some on this sold out trip, questioned whether the city would be able to rebound before we arrived.  However, NY showed the resiliency it is known for, and were met friendly people and staff, not to mention the perfect weather.
