NYC 8There is nothing like spending the day in New York City. The options of things to do and see are endless. Rain or shine, you definitely can find fun in the Big Apple. This year’s Alumni trip took 41 guys and gals to experience a variety of attractions all over Manhattan and even beyond as a few ventured to Coney Island and some cruised around the harbor.

Oppressive heat did not seem to stop us from having a great time although we noticed visits to museums were rather popular this year. Some of our travelers were enticed to visit the interesting exhibit, “SHIPWRECK! Pirates & Treasure,” currently on display in the Theater District. Others’ itineraries included the City Museum and, of course, the ever popular Museum of Natural History. My husband and I checked out the Chelsea area where several flea markets and a street festival were taking place. We also spent time in a few art galleries which provided us with brief retreats from the heat.

The city’s parks provided great refuge as well and we found you could almost always catch a great performer, a chess match, or simply enjoy an ice cream cone–or my fave, a Crumbs cupcake—while there. (A Crumbs Bake Shop is conveniently located right across from Bryant Park where our bus picks us up for the ride home.)

The Alumni Association wishes to thank the patrons who journeyed with us and the Alumni Office ladies, Louise and Mary, for making this yet another fun and memorable day in the Big Apple.
