From Manhattan to the Met Museum and Broadway to Brooklyn Bridge, around 50 students and staff from the West Suffolk College’s School of Art and Design, in Bury St Edmunds, have returned from a five-day trip to New York.

They took in all the tourist hotspots including Wall Street, the 911 Memorial, the Empire State Building, the Statue of Liberty and Time Square.

They visited the studio of renowned artist Derek Lerner, the MOMA gallery, a tour of the Peter Tunney gallery and studio, Nathan’s famous hot dog restaurant, Junior’s Cheesecake Diner in Flatbush and a meal at Lombardi’s, America’s first pizzeria in Little Italy.

They also travelled on the Queensborough Bridge cable car for night views of Manhattan, saw the iconic Comic Store, went ice skating at the Rockefeller centre and some students even took their skateboards across the Atlantic so they could skate at the Les Coleman Chinatown skate park under the Manhattan Bridge.
