A group of 24 Film and Media students took a trip across the Atlantic this month, to explore one of the world’s most iconic film locations; New York City.
The trip was an opportunity for students to visit the iconic landmarks seen on screen, visit famous filming locations and learn more about the film and media industry.
Students made the most of their four days in the big apple and did not stop once the plain wheels hit the tarmac. As well as discovering a range of different restaurants across Manhattan, the group enjoyed an NBC Studio tour and afternoon visit to the Empire State Building on their first day, followed up by an opportunity to hit the shops! Day two included a trip on the subway to the New York Film Academy, a ferry across to Liberty and Ellis Island and a visit to the Immigration Museum. Before catching an evening flight home, students made the most of their final morning; taking a walk across Brooklyn Bridge and shopping on 5th Avenue.
Flying home with much more luggage than they went with, and some treasured memories too, the group landed back on UK soil feeling a little tired after their trip of a lifetime!
