More sight-seeing in New York
This is the third of my four-part photo album of Reggie’s trip to New York.
The very first day the River East Collegiate group arrived in New York, they went on a walking tour of the city that afternoon. They saw Carnegie Hall, Radio City Music Hall, etc.
The following days, when they were not at the Jazz at the Lincoln Center, they were walking through Midtown and Manhattan. It was on the second day when they dropped by the Today Show on NBC. Reggie and his friend Clay were on camera for about four seconds. I missed it. I was watching Good Morning America on ABC.
They also went to the Ed Sullivan Theatre where the Late Show with David Letterman is taped. And if you watch this show, you must be familiar with Rupert from Hello Deli. Reggie got to meet Rupert and even took a video clip and they had a picture together too.
They also went to the Grand Central Terminal, The New York Public Library, Central Park, Times Square, Ground Zero, Ellis Island, etc.
When they were starting to line up to go to the ferry that would bring them to Ellis Island to see the Statue of Liberty, there was this street musician who was then starting to pack up. When he learned that the group was from Canada, he stayed and played “O Canada,” our national anthem, much to the delight of the group.
