Alumni Association Travels to the Big Apple

February 2nd, 2016 Posted in Alumni News & Events
In November the Alumni Association traveled to the Big Apple for a weekend, staying at a hotel conveniently located near Times Square. We experienced pleasantly warm weather for November, making it a wonderful time for roaming about the city. On Saturday people on our trip visited the 9/11 Memorial, Freedom Tower, NY Harbor via the Staten Island Ferry, and the historical Trinity Church; among other sites. People enjoyed museums such as MOMA (Modern Museum of Art) and the American Museum of Natural History. Others toured NYC on The Ride, a multimedia bus tour of NYC. Of course, some of our travelers can’t go to NYC without seeing a play. I experienced Jersey Boys while others enjoyed Aladdin and Beautiful (a Carole King musical). On Sunday morning, the hotel provided a complementary hot breakfast in their cozy breakfast room.

Another popular thing to do in NYC is shopping; and judging from the bags when we boarded our motor coach on Sunday afternoon, a lot of shopping was done over the weekend. Some travelers spent their last day at Bryant Park’s Winter Village; a public park with holiday shops, ice skating and many more activities. There is always plenty to do and see in Manhattan, and we are already preparing for next fall’s excursion to NYC, and you are welcome to join us.
