A group of 40 AEU crew members took a long weekend trip to New York City. The community decided on what sites to visit during the planning process.

We took a ferry to the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island, explored the 9/11 Memorial, had a tour and workshop at the Guggenheim, and toured MoMA on our own. In between our visits, we explored the city and the festive magic of NYC at the holidays.
