Hidden NY.jpg

Objectives:

Our group is Hidden New York. We went on several trips throughout New York, to different landmarks to learn about their history that were right under New Yorkers' eyes. Our group went to these 4 different hidden places to see and learn about them. Hidden NY is all about visiting places that are “hidden” under the naked eye of New York. Over the week we went to many different places scattered across New York such as Brooklyn, Manhattan and Roosevelt Island.
