than any other place on earth.” You’ll recognize its legendary and iconic landmarks: the Statue of Liberty, Central Park, Broadway, Times Square, Rockefeller Center, and more. As always, there is a combination of group activities along with time for you to pursue your own interests. We have an exciting trip planned, and invite you to join us as we take in the sights, the lights
and the sounds of this vibrant city!
