The group left D.C. this morning from their hotel at 6:30 A.M. On to Philadelphia, PA and New York City!
The group stopped in Philadelphia to tour Independence Hall at 10:30 A.M. and ate Philly Cheese Steaks for lunch afterwards.
Justin Shockley said, “The cheesesteak in Philadelphia was really good. We ran out of Sun Drop on the bus yesterday, and that was rough.”
The bus then arrived in New York City around 2:30 P.M. -- just in time to check into the Radio City Hotel, walk through Central Park, visit Top of the Rock, and attend a Broadway show. Students either saw Wicked, The Lion King, or Aladdin.
Some students absolutely loved the city, while others had mixed feelings.
Brady Kruse states, “New York is a little overwhelming. At times it’s super cool, other times it seems dirty and sketchy. I’m really glad I got to see it, but I don’t know if I could ever live here.”
Emma Eichelberger says, “New York makes you realize how small you really are. It’s truly humbling to stand at the Top of the Rock looking onto a beautiful landscape made by man, knowing millions of other lives are hustling and bustling below you.”
Anna Miller added, “New York feels like home to me and I’ve only been here six hours.”
Day 5 finished!
