With two days of touring behind them, Feather editors and adviser Greg Stobbe pose in from of the Freedom Tower in NYC before they visit the 9-11 Memorial Museum, March 19.

With two full days in New York under their belts, the editors prepared themselves for their third full day in the city. One more day and the team will spend the rest of the week at Columbia University for the Columbia Scholastic Press Association’s 91st convention.

Warm clothes were strongly suggested and the group departed from the hotel at 9:30 a.m to take the subway as FC hits NY and visit the 9/11 Memorial.

The 9-11 Memorial has been in the stages of construction since 2007 and is still being added to. The highlight of the site was the museum dedicated to honoring those who lost their lives and their loved ones.

After the memorial, the editors made their way down Wall Street and popped in to the Trinity Church. Following the cathedral the group made their way to Battery Park where they watched street dancers perform and viewed the Statue of Liberty from afar.

From there, the girls made their way back to Times Square to shop freely and the boys took a trip to Grand Central Station before returning back to Times Square to shop.

The group met up at 7:45 p.m. to make their way to the 8 p.m. Broadway showing of An American in Paris and ate a late dinner at TGI Fridays.

First timer in New York City, Trevor Beal, shares his impressions of the city along with his favorite aspects of the trip.

“This is my first time ever being in NYC,” Beal said, “I have been to other big cities before but none compare to NYC, Grand Central Station and Wall Street have been my favorite parts of the trip so far, along with the Phantom of the Opera play and 911 Memorial Museum.”

Chloe Mueller, Editor-in-Chief, says she will enjoy giving a session at the 91st CSPA Journalism Convention at Columbia University.

“This year gave me a new look on the trip because we are teaching sessions at Columbia University,” Mueller said. “But the sightseeing is still fun. I loved the 9/11 Memorial.”
