Tonawanda News — “Having the ability to be able to go on a trip like this is great,” Forster said. “Many may be thinking about going to college there, they’ll be able to ask themselves, ‘could I walk around (New York City) every single day?’ It would give them exposure to city life.”
The trip is entirely funded by the students, who have raised funds over the past two years to make the trip possible. The time and money are expected to be well worth it, and everyone is excited.
“It’s a great opportunity to go there with people of the same interests and experience what New York has to offer, musically and everything else,” Balen said. “You don’t get that anywhere else.”Contact reporter Mia Summerson at 693-1000, ext. 4313.
