The ‘23 St. Mary’s Scholars Trip to New York City


Mary Ellen McDermott

Exploring the flashing signs in the heart of Times Square

In June, I went with the class of 2023 St. Mary’s Scholars on the annual New York City trip, which follows junior year. The emphasis of the trip is to explore the arts and culture. We stopped at popular landmarks, including Central Park, St. Patrick’s Cathedral, Rockefeller Center, and the Museum of Modern Art. In the evenings, we saw Hamilton and Hadestown on Broadway. We also got a taste of New York pizza at John’s Pizzeria of Times Square. The following pictures capture the highlights of our trip.
