Niv15 Takes NYC


This week Nivonim explored the great streets of New York City. After leaving camp quite early Monday morning, we arrived at Sutton Place Synagogue, where we stayed for our three-day, two-night tiyyul (trip). That afternoon, we headed uptown to the Metropolitan Museum of Art, followed by an afternoon stroll along the east side and eventually some time in Bryant Park at a carnival.

On Tuesday, the edah went deep into the heart of the city, the subway. We spent a meaningful hour reflecting at the memorial for the attacks of September 11, 2001 and then explored nearby areas in Lower Manhattan, including a beautiful view of the Statue of Liberty herself from Battery Park. Another subway brought us uptown to Times Square and Central Park, where we spent the remainder of our afternoon.

Wednesday morning we stopped by the Jewish Theological Seminary of America for an information session by List College, as well as a brief stop at the Columbia/Barnard campuses. After lunch there in Morningside Heights, we hopped back on the buses to return to Palmer after an amazing week down south in NYC.
