Over Spring Break HEARTS offered its trip to New York, and it was a blast. Appropriately, the trip was all about arts and culture. The ten students experienced in most cases their first trip to New York, and the excitement was palpable. They packed up as much as was humanly possible in the trip’s short five days: private guided visits to the Metropolitan Museum of Art (voted favorite place!), the Whitney, and MoMA; two Broadway shows (Matilda and An American in Paris); visits to the New York Public Library, Grand Central Station, the Empire State Building, Times Square, Central Park, Radio City Music Hall, Rockefeller Center, the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, and the 9/11 Memorial, among others. Even the weather was on their side: highs in the upper ‘50s and lows in the mid-‘30s. Some students managed to build a snowman, while others had a meal in Chinatown. As for food, they might want to abstain from hotdogs for a while. The travelers came back exhausted and exultant.
The 2017 HEARTS New York trip is programmed for Spring Break: March 13-17, 2017. More information coming soon!
