New York, New York

Overview

Quote:
The most memorable moment is the bus ride there and back with 120 students and about 6 adults to make sure we didn't do anything too stupid. One of the best things to do is see a Broadway show in New York. They are so good. It is also nice to be able to meet some of the actors for a workshop.Quick Tips: Make sure you get the most out of your trip. There are so many more things to do than just the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, and the Empire State Building. Those places are wonderful to see, but there is so much more.Best Way To Get Around: Walk, walk, walk. Or, if you are staying out of New York, rent a car or take a taxi, park it, and walk most of the time. (Watch out for the...Read More

The items they have on the wall and ceiling are amazing. There are so many things from different actors, and they have a horse from a carousel and an astronaut hanging from the ceiling.

I saw Cabaret and Gypsy. It was so amazing watching the people act and sing. The setting you are in kind of reflects what’s going on in the plays also.

I went to the Empire State Building at about 8 at night. It was one of the most amazing things I have seen. You could see all the lights of New York. The wind was a little breezy, but otherwise it was beautiful.

It is really cool being able to see where some of the shows we watch are actually recorded. On our tour, one of the students got to pretend to be a weatherman, and it's not as easy as it seems--let's just say that.

We didn't actually get to drive over the bridge, but we stopped at a port to go shopping and were able to go in back of the building and see the bridge. It's amazing how people can build huge bridges over water.

Quote:
This is one thing everyone has to see in their lifetime. It is so heartbreaking when you see all the letters from loved ones on a wall just outside the area of Ground Zero. They have a tall fence up so you can't get inside at all, but you are still able to see the progress they are making.

Radio City Music Hall Backstage Tour

Attraction | "Rockefeller Center"

Quote:
My choir took a tour of Rockefeller Center, and when we got on stage to look out at the audience that wasn't there, we got to sing on stage. It was so cool being able to say we sung where famous people had sung. The chandeliers in the entryway weigh about 2 tons; I'd hate to clean them.

Attraction

Quote:
The Statue wasn't as tall as I thought it was going to be, but it was still amazing. When my choir went, it wasn't open to go inside the statue, but we still got to sing around the tall flag post they had on the island.
