DCS students travel to New York City
The trip to New York City was very eventful. We started off in a small plane and ended up in one of the largest cities in the world. Despite the temperature at twelve degrees, we walked across the city to get to our destinations. The city was beautiful, but at night, it truly came alive. The different colors and lights of Manhattan at night could possibly be the most beautiful sight anyone could ever see.
Among the most memorable things, smelly hobos on the subway and a snow covered Central Park stand out in my mind. We were also able to see the musical Wicked, considered to be one of the best musicals performed not only on Broadway, but across the globe. Watching the musical and seeing the actors show a tremendous amount of talent made it evident why so many people speak of it so highly. The history of New York City was evident when we visited Ellis Island and Rockefeller Center. Tours of NBC Studios and Fifth Avenue helped us realize why the city is so great. The shopping was another great experience. Manhattan has everything for the fashionistas of the world. They have every designer imaginable. Fifth Avenue is the home to Coach, Prada, Gucci, and a Bergdorf Goodman so huge that anyone could get lost. Manhattan also has stores such as the Hershey store, the M&M store, and a very large Apple store. Don’t think the kids are left out, though. Within walking distance, there is a Disney store, the world’s largest F.A.O. Swartz, and a Toy’s R’ Us so big that there is a Ferris wheel in it.
New York City is nothing like what we are used to. It is fast, crowded, and filled with sights so special that people from all around the world travel to see them. It is a different lifestyle and a very different place, but it is most definitely a place that can be appreciated. I am sure it is an experience we will not soon forget.
