We have had a fantastic time in New York. On Wednesday we visited The World Trade Centre and took some time to look down on to Ground Zero. The Statten Island ferry enabled us to view the Statue of Liberty from the water and to marvel at the incredible buildings that make up Manhattan. In the evening we gave a short concert at the New York HQ of HSBC on Fifth Avenue. A good number of Old Decanians and friends of the choir and school gathered for food, wine and music. Mr and Mrs Jonathan Lancashire and Mr and Mrs Taylor hosted the event on behalf of the school, and Mr Paul Lawrence, a Dean Close parents and CEO of HSBC New York hosted on behalf of the bank. We were on the top floor; the back-drop was simply stunning.
This morning, I was able to enjoy a run in Central Park, before we boarded the coach for the long journey down to White Marsh, Gloucester, Virginia.
