We woke up early this morning to get on the 7.45 train into Grand Central Station. When we arrived in New York we went straight to the Empire State Building for spectacular 360 degree views over the city. The weather was beautiful so we could see for miles over Manhattan and New Jersey.
We continued on to Times Square to see the giant advertisements and bright lights, and of course we visited the Hershey's and M&M sweet shops.
We stopped for lunch at Times Square Hard Rock Cafe before moving onto see the Rockerfella Centre, ice rink (surrounded by the nation's state flags) and the Cathedral.
Central Park was the next stop for a stroll around the lake and then we finished the day at the Modern Art Museum gift shop and a Christmas market near to Grand Central.
After arriving back from a very tiring but exciting day, the students are now getting ready for the Yale Ball, hosted at our hotel.
After a long day, we are all looking forward to a good sleep ready for the final day of the WSC.
