From Manhattan to the Met Museum and Broadway to Brooklyn Bridge, around 50 students and staff from West Suffolk College’s School of Art and Design enjoyed an incredible trip to New York.

They took in all the tourist hotspots including Wall Street, the 911 Memorial, the Empire State Building and the Statue of Liberty.

 They visited the studio of renowned artist Derek Lerner, the MOMA gallery and an amazing tour of the Peter Tunney gallery and studio.

The five-day trip was packed and fast moving with early starts and walking many miles each day. They enjoyed food, which included a visit to Nathan’s famous hot dog restaurant, Junior’s Cheesecake Diner in Flatbush and a meal at Lombardi’s, America’s first pizzeria in Little Italy.

They also travelled on the Queensborough Bridge cable car for night views of Manhattan, saw the iconic Comic Store, went ice skating at the Rockefeller centre and some students even took their skateboards across the Atlantic so they could skate at the Les Coleman Chinatown skate park under the Manhattan Bridge.

 Derek Johnson, director of art and design said they had been travelling to the Big Apple for 15 years.

“Over the years we have taken over 600 students to New York City as part of our Art School ethos of adventure, curiosity, confidence and ambition. It has been incredible – opening minds to the joy of travel, the wonder of the urban landscape and countless memories that last a lifetime. I recently spoke to two ex students who went with us several years ago, they said it was still the best thing they had done in their teenage years and have since both returned and it has spurred them to travel the world.”

Art student Jodie Hyson, 17, said:” I will never forget my time and experiences in New York, travelling to all the different corners of the city. I love the subway and making great new friends – an amazing week!’
