Day 3: New York City

Greetings from New York City! When we arrived here it was pouring and pretty nasty. We arrived a little early but we watched some cool movies such as Kung Fu Panda and Kill Bill, which were both great movies and made the bus ride that much quicker. We had our concert tonight at Temple Emanu-El, which was absolutely gorgeous and was an amazing place to sing. Two alumni soloists including Bob McGrath who has spent over 30 years on Sesame Street joined us. He gave us a message from Oscar the grouch who told us to “ Have a rotten day.” This made us smile and his solos were excellent. After the concert we decided to go out on the town because it had stopped raining. I went out with a few clubbers to around the area of NYU. We took a cab and had an interesting experience. They really drive aggressively, but I am kind of used to it being from the northeast. We had fun down by NYU but decided to go hang out in Times Square at 2 AM. This was a lot of fun because even though it was 2 in the morning, Times Square was still booming and very busy. We came back to the hotel to get some sleep for our free day in the city tomorrow.
