How to send me YOUR Best Picture

Wednesday & Thursday's pictures

To the HENLEY COLLEGE Business & Leisure pages

A mixture of 1st and 2nd year travel and tourism students decided to
have a go at conquering NYC.
We all met at Heathrow airport exited to be going to the Big Apple at last.
After an uneventful flight we all arrived without any mishaps



After a long subway ride to check into the hotel we all headed of to the Empire State Building.


When we arrived at the top, 86 floors up, we were all in awe of seeing New York below us all lit up.



The views were stunning, but it was windy and very cold.

Central Park was just two minutes from the Hostel, but armed with "Metro Cards" we took the subway to Strawberry Fields for a look at the John Lennon "memorial".
