Senior Team:

Today the Seniors were lucky enough to have a day off from the tournament to explore New York City. Facing minus degree temperatures and rain, this didn’t stop both Jamie and Russell from seeing the sites.

After leaving Grand Central, we saw Times Square, the Empire State Building, Maddison Square Garden, 911 memorial and then took a ferry tour of The Statue of Liberty all whilst braving the gale wind.

We had a long list of culinary treats to try while in NYC, so lunch of course consisted of a slice of pie (pizza), followed by New York style cheese cake and mozzarella sticks. We took a tour of Central Park and Harlem, first seeing where the rich and famous once lived liked John Lennon, Frida Kahlo and Tupac. Finally we finished the day at the Museum of New York learning about the people who fought to create the New York we know and love today.
