Local Tours and Attractions
Where can Institute students expect to visit?
LaGuardia Airport – CONFIRMED FOR 2022!
This summer we are planning a behind the scenes tour of LaGuardia Airport. The airport, which has two new terminals in operation, is in the process of a multi-billion-dollar redevelopment initiative designed to transform the facility into an ultra-modern transportation hub for passengers. Completing a massive construction program while keeping this busy metropolitan airport operating involves intricate planning and execution. Students will see and learn first-hand from airport engineers what it takes to manage and operate the airport as well as the construction, tour some of the facilities and if weather permits visit the ramp to see the aircraft landing and taking-off.
Another field trip is in the works and will be posted as soon as it is confirmed!
What can Summer Institute students expect for weekend activities?
We'll spend Saturday exploring Manhattan! First we plan to check out the One World Observatory, the Oculus, and the 9/11 Memorial. After that, we'll break into small groups and head to different destinations in the city. Have you been to Times Square? Taken a ride on the Staten Island Ferry and seen the Statue of Liberty? Walked through Central Park? Based on student interest, availability, and weather, we'll pack this day with as much as we can and take advantage of the great things NYC has to offer to our engineer school NY students.
On Sunday, we'll relax at one of Brooklyn's most iconic destinations: Coney Island. Relax on the beach, walk the boardwalk, try a Nathan's Famous hot dog, or ride the fun amusement park rides. This is a student favorite!
