On Friday, February 17th, NYEA students and staff attended the Firecracker Ceremony and Cultural Festival at Sara Roosevelt Park in Chinatown. Over 600,000 firecrackers were lit to celebrate the start of Lunar New Year and the “year of the dog.” In addition, lion dances were performed throughout Chinatown. After the festivities, students enjoyed steamed wontons, shrimp noodles, Taiwanese-marinated duck, crispy pork, and more at the Taiwan Pork Chop House on Doyers Street.

This past Friday, we headed out to Melody Lanes Bowling Alley in Sunset Park, Brooklyn for a fun field trip. Sunset Park is well known for its tacos so upon arriving, the four of us stopped by the El Bronco taco truck to eat before heading into Melody Lanes, less than half a block away. Once inside, we got a good deal and enjoyed a few games of fun bowling. After tiring ourselves out, we headed into the arcade room and the students enjoyed playing the arcade games for some time. Later on, we couldn’t resist heading back to the taco truck to get some more tacos before departing to start our weekends.
