By the Business club
Last April, the SMCC Business Club made their annual pilgrimage to New York City, taking in the sights and experiencing NYC from a variety of points of view. This year’s group was the Business Club’s largest and most diverse yet!
Leaving from our international hostel in Chelsea, the Club visited historic Trinity Church, world-famous Wall Street, the New York Stock Exchange (from the outside, where the pic was taken), Federal Hall, Trump Building, iconic Wall Street symbol, “the Raging Bull” statue (now, with the “Fearless Girl” statue), Alexander Hamilton Custom House, and other famous business landmarks. Then, we toured the sobering and beautiful 9/11 Memorial reflecting pools and got a breathtaking top-floor view of NYC and Manhattan (and beyond) from the One World Observatory tour.
Several Business Club members took in a Broadway performance of “The Lion King,” while others visited the world-famous Times Square, some ventured to the Village and others headed off to Brooklyn — proving the old adage that there is indeed something for everyone in New York City! The Club ended its jaunt in NYC on Saturday eve as all members went to the New York Comedy Club for a raucous multi-comedian performance.
It was a wonderful trip, and everyone got to know each other better while enjoying the uniqueness of the Big Apple!
