By Kiera Reilly, C’93
The weekend of December 23 – 24, 2016, marked 72 weeks to our 25th reunion, so I thought some pictures of a December day trip to New York City would be appropriate for that week’s #93tothe25th countdown.
Freshman year, during what I assume must have been reading days, four of us took a Penn Student Agencies sponsored bus – or did we take NJ Transit – to visit New York City for the day.
I found these bus tickets and the NJ Transit ticket in my Freshman year scrapbook, so I’m not sure which mode of transit we took. Lisa Bardfeld Shapiro, C’93, says she remembers us taking the train, so maybe I made another trip to NYC with PSA?
We spent a full day in the city, and Lisa says she remembers our friend Deanna Huffman being wide-eyed at everything since she had never visited New York before.
We stopped at FAO Schwartz and had fun looking at all of the toys on display. It’s hard to believe that the store went out of business last year.
A trip to New York in December is not complete unless you visit the Christmas Tree at Rockefeller Center!
