Fall 2016 NYC trip info

NYC TRIP – FALL 2016 – Museum Mile”*
Friday, October 28th

Departure time for New York: 8:30 a.m. SHARP!

Pick-up at end of day in front of Metropolitan Museum at 7:30 p.m. SHARP!
Returning to Lyme: About 10:30 p.m.

Our bus will drive straight through and will not stop on the way.
The bus has a toilet on board.
Expected arrival time at the Metropolitan Museum: About 11:00 a.m.

Suggestions:
Make sure to eat breakfast before you get on the bus.
Bring a pillow for a nap on the way down, and on the way back.

Food during the day: Think ahead!
Bring snack or lunch food for yourself to eat on bus, so that you are not hungry at 10:45 - 11:00 when we arrive. The first thing you do in NY should not be to look for a place to eat. This will waste a lot of time.

THE BUSES WILL MEET US WERE THEY DROPPED US OFF STARTING AT 12:30 SO YOU CAN RETRIEVE YOUR LUNCHES, IF YOU BROUGHT THEM.

Bring a sandwich or snack food for the ride back.

Bring some money grabbing a bite in a museum café or towards the end of the day in a diner or restaurant.  The timing of your order, eating and payment in a restaurant will need to accommodate our 7:30 departure time.
If you have some food you can leave in the bus, that’s simpler.

Dress:
Sensible shoes for walking on pavement, and weather appropriate.

Bring a freshly charged phone, and a pencil and pad. Ink is not allowed in museums. Check with your individual instructors about meeting times and assignments.
