New York Trip April 2017

The Creative Arts trip to New York City took place in the first week of the Easter holiday. In five days of seemingly non-stop activity students soaked up the cultural richness and diversity of this most iconic city. Bounding from one end of Manhattan to the other we took in everything from opera at the MET to late-night diners off Times Square, picnics in Central Park to Miss Saigon on Broadway, gems of twentieth-century art at MoMA to midnight city views from the Empire State building. Between countless other highlights, including a very special violin recital at Carnegie Hall, a dance class at the Broadway Dance Studio and an evening at a Jazz club, students used their free time to explore the streets and cafes in midtown Manhattan and immerse themselves in the magnificence and craziness of the city that never sleeps.
