We re just back from another clear and breezy day in NYC. From Liberty Park, NJ we took the ferry to Ellis Island, where we spent the morning. On the way there Mr Daniels gave the students a very thorough lecture on immigration there at the beginning of the 20th century. We were able to see it for ourselves walking through the Registration Hall as well as the various exhibits.
Second ferry stop was of course the Statue of Liberty. An impressive lady indeed, inside and outside. An added benefit this year was the new museum on the island, where the original crown is displayed. The students are looking forward to a fun-filled weekend with their families.
Thursday: News of the day We spent the day in New York. It was cloudy and still breezy from the wind storm last night. A walk through Central Park, down 5th Avenue, by St Patrick s and over to see the first ice skaters of the season.
Lunch at Times Square, then on to the Broadway musical: The Phantom of the Opera. It was a spectacular rendition of the novel by Gaston Leroux. Haunting music and brilliant special effects. All in all, a great day!
