These streets will make you feel brand new Big lights will inspire you Let's hear it for New York, New York, New York

So i am finally blogging again! Hooray! But this time it's not NASCAR related at all. Instead it's a re-cap of my trip to New York City with my choir over our spring break. Also before i get started i'd like to apologize for no new NASCAR race updates, i have been busy and then missed last weekend's race... don't worry i will get back on it though in no time! :) Now onto New York............

You've heard the song "Empire State of Mind" by Alicia Keys and Jay Z. It's all about New York, hence my title for this blog! :) Well after much fundraising and more, we all came upon the day of leaving for NYC. Our choir teacher was ready to go and we were all super pumped to take such an amazing trip to such a wonderful state! We left Saturday April 2nd early in the morning and arrived in Newark around 5:30pm. Getting onto the coaches, we drove right into NYC going through the Lincoln Tunnel and then had dinner at a nice restaurant, we also toured Times Square and it was truly the start to one heck of a 5 days. Getting home late, we fell asleep and woke up the next morning to enjoy another fun day of walking around and seeing multiple sights.

We had a clinic with a choir teacher, got some great advice and some awesome approval for our pieces. Even though the traffic was crazy, we still got in  NYC everyday and spent as much time as possible. We ate at a variety of places like: Planet Hollywood, A italian place in "Little Italy", Pizza (Last Night). As for lunch, well that was on our own time, the last day my friend and I went to TRUMP TOWER and ate downstairs and had a blast!

We did a lot of sightseeing like: Empire State Building (86th Floor View), Ellis Island and Statue of Liberty, Ground Zero, Julliard, Harlem, 5th Avenue, and so much more. Beyond that, we got a lot of free time to walk around and see things in their full view and of course go shopping. Fast walking, bumping shoulders, honking, and more is really only a small taste of what NYC is. We also got to sing at the largest cathedral in the world, that being Saint John the Divine. It was awesome, we also sang in central park to a guy who played the sax, then we got to sing after church on Sunday as well. Singing, Sightseeing, Laughing, Sharing Memories, and just enjoying time together was the key to this trip.

I can say this trip was a perfect getaway for me and many others, we all had fun and were able to get closer with our fellow choir friends. I cannot say thank you enough to my choir teacher, all the chaperones, tour guides, bus drivers, and symphonic members! I had so much fun with you guys and gals, cannot wait to do something like that again! :D New York City was a trip that made Spring Break so much fun, i would go back their any day again!

NOTE: All Pictures being posted are ones i took! Do Not Steal!
