From Program Director Eve Khan: Today was an extremely busy but fun day! We started off with Professor Samuel Rowlett leading an orientation to prepare students for day 1 of our 5 museum extravaganza!

After that, the entire group walked over to Grand Central Terminal where we had a few minor quibbles with the Metrocard machine (just like real New Yorkers)!
Then it was lunch downstairs in the food court. Some students discovered Shake Shack for the first time while others embraced a pizza sandwich.

Students Will and Chloe AG patiently waiting to go.
Finally, a trip to Kinokuniya, the mega store for Manga, comic books and stationery. What a beautiful store and shout out to the wonderful employees that helped our students at the checkout. I think everyone is going to sleep well tonight in preparation for The Metropolitan Museum of Art tomorrow.
Here a few more photos of the group walking around New York. Good Night!
