What can 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? Rode 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.
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!
