NYC Trip Recap

December 11th, 2013 Posted in Alumni News & Events

This year for our annual fall journey to NYC, 48 ACC/CCC alumni and friends enjoyed a multitude of the city’s attractions. We stayed at the Marriott Marquis at Times Square: a forty-nine story hotel located in the middle of everything anyone would want to do in the Big Apple. In order to get to our rooms, you needed to pause and take a quick course in Elevator Ed 102. Every room in the hotel has a great view of the city.

The weather was windy and brisk, typical of a weekend in November. Members of our group enjoyed some Broadway plays: Big Fish, Once, First Date and Glass Menagerie. Many in our group enjoyed the annual Radio City Music Hall Christmas Spectacular. Shopping is always a big attraction; who could go to NYC without going to Macy’s, Toys R Us at Times Square or the Shops at the Winter Village in Bryant Park? Museums like MOMA, The Met, and my favorite the Sea, Air & Space Museum on the USS Intrepid are also high on the “must do” list. We even had some celebrity sightings. Joan Rivers was seen and a member of our group got Billy Crystal’s autograph.

Of course, people enjoy eating in the city, and some of the restaurants enjoyed were Carlotta’s, Bourbon Street, Blue Fin and the Westway Diner. Some of us took a quick trip through New York Harbor on the toll free Staten Island Ferry.

Everyone had a wonderful time in NYC doing their own thing. Thanks goes out to Louise and Mary in the Alumni Office for making the arrangements for another great adventure.
