I was mesmerized by Times Square and had a ball at the Broadway show I attended.
More than 135 years old, the Brooklyn Bridge spans across the East River from lower Manhattan to Brooklyn Heights. HS Academy students have the opportunity to walk across the Bridge, getting a bird's eye view of the City and its surroundings.
Students can walk the High Line, a repurposed subway line on Manhattan's west side, which has been transformed into a park-like setting that winds its way for 1.45 miles through many of the City's most interesting neighborhoods.
Class trips and evening outings include excursions to lower Manhattan that offer spectacular views of NY Harbor and Lady Liberty.
Trips to Central Park provide a welcome break from the hustle and bustle of the city streets. A great place to take pictures, the Park offers more than 843 acres to explore in the heart of NYC
