Our Alumni

Manuel from Spain (16 years old

"This is my first time in NYC, and I have done and seen a lot.  I didn't know there are plants that taste like fish and that there are oysters in NYC harbor. I have also enjoyed hanging out with my cousins and skateboarding in Chelsea."

Bogdan from the Ukraine (10 years old)

"My favorite day in NYC was when we met Victoria, a 14-year-old Greek Sephardic girl who lived on the Lower East Side in 1916.  We learned about her life living with 9 other members of her family in the tiny 3-room tenement apartment and got to ask her all sorts of questions.  I loved that!"

Bruna from Brazil (10 years old)

"My favorite day in NYC was at the Bronx Zoo.  I love snakes and animals! We had only one giant chocolate chip to share at lunch, and we played an animal trivia game to win pieces of it.  It was so much fun!  

My worst day in NYC was the day I was almost an hour late to class.  The subway connection for the #6 train was a nightmare."
