Seeing New York
--United Nations AKA My future location of employment?--
This morning we had the privilege of sleeping in! We had breakfast at a little café right next door to our hotel. After, we made our way to Central Park where there was a multitude of people walking around. We took a tour bus to see New York. We went to Harlem, through Times Square, Greenwich Village and nearly every corner of Manhattan. I could not stop taking pictures! Though we toured for hours I never got tired of the city; it’s just so beautiful and historical; there’s always something new to learn about it. I was surprised to see that Wall Street is actually really small and narrow.
--Central Park's Great Lawn--
After touring we went to the Plaza Hotel, one of the most esteemed hotels around the room, where we had a snack. Eventually we left and made our way back to our hotel by walking through Central Park passing the Great Lawn. We spent over an hour relaxing and enjoying each other before heading out to dinner at Bar Americain (Bobby Flay’s restaurant).
At the restaurant we discussed our plans for tomorrow: leaving the hotel, having brunch with a Yale admissions officer and moving to Columbia. I am so excited to talk one-on-one with an admissions officer to fulfill all of my curiosity about the college admissions process. Columbia, here we come!
