New York 2017 – Day four

February 22, 2017

New York Trip – Day 4

Do read more about our New York 2017 trip in our blogs: Day three,  Day two, Day one (part two) and Off to New York!

All the world’s a stage…

Day 3 finished with a trip to a Broadway Show  -School of Rock. Conveniently the Winter Gardens Theatre  is situated very close to our hotel.


Getting ready for the Broadway show!

Once inside it was School of Rock which took over!

Mr M has been asking pupils about their highlight of Ballard School’s trip to New York. The main response – ‘Just love it all!’.

and so to Day 4

Our pupils were looking forward to this day and they were not disappointed.

After breakfast and compulsory fruit we walked up to Central Park to visit Central Park Zoo. We passed Trump Towers on the president spotted but lots of security.

Where’s Donald? Walking past Trump Towers, New York

The weather has turned a little colder but fine with no rain again today.

Central Park Zoo was great and we were treated to a fantastic show with both penguins and seal lions being fed.

Never one to miss the tourist shots…

Next we had our tour of Madison Square Garden . In the words of Mr M:

Wow what a venue!!

The tour got us very excited for the big game later.

Adorning the club colours we made our way to the ice hockey game together with 18 000 fans.

The group loved the game and what a game it was against the Montreal Canadiens….overtime and then penalties; 3 hours of great entertainment! Unfortunately the Rangers lost…worth watching highlights if you can! See more on the NHL website.
