2017 Senior Trip to New York City


We took 23 Seniors this year on our annual Senior Trip to the Big Apple! After driving through the night on Thursday, students arrived in the City on Friday morning. They got the chance to check out the Today Show window, hang out in Midtown Manhattan (including Rockefeller Center and Times Square), take an all-access tour of Radio City Music Hall, and see the breathtaking views from the Top of the Rock! After a full day, we had dinner at Virgil’s Real BBQ and took the Subway to Greenwich Village where we got to see the incredible Blue Man Group show. Our fun-filled day on Saturday consisted of a guided city tour (including St. John’s Cathedral, the 9/11 Memorial, and more), followed by lunch and shopping in Chinatown and Little Italy. We rode the Staten Island Ferry, which took us past Ellis Island, the Statue of Liberty, and Brooklyn, and gave us a picturesque view of the lower Manhattan skyline. We ended the day with dinner at Planet Hollywood and an amazing performance of “Aladdin” on Broadway. Sunday morning brought us to the Museum of Natural History before the long bus ride home. A good time was had by all! Check out some of the pictures from our trip below.
