We woke up, packed up, and shipped out...
First stop St. Malachy's chapel (The Actor's chapel)... Very Catholic in decor, but low and behold the organ rang out with "There's no Business Like Show Business"... AWESOME! I was disappointed to see no angel with jazz hands in any of the frescos.
The students sang some tunes for local patrons... it was nice
After the chapel it was off to China Town for some reputable shopping... but on the way we drove past the famous Copacabana which is unfortunately is closing down... The kids were so excited because they had just finished their musical about the famous night club
Ahh Chinatown... I got a Tiffany's ring, a couple pashminas, and a samurai sword... awesome!
I was a master at the haggling... I got the $20 sword for only $11... and a tiffany's bracelet and ring for $12 together... everyone with me was so impressed, but what can I say after being taken to yardsales for my whole life by my mom and learning from the master herself, what can I say... I am my mother's daughter.
So after Chinatown we left the city and drove back to Newark airport in Jersey... and flew home... I have to say as much as I love the city and had so much fun, I could never live there... but I am fully planning on another trip to the city soon.
