– Jake Weiss Today, I woke up at 7:30 and went on a personal pilgrimage that everyone should experience when in New York. I, along with a handful of my friends, went to Ess-a-Bagel, an iconic institution that has really mastered the art of boiling and baking dough. I used to frequent it in my Continue Reading »

– Simon Gaines.  Today, my alarm woke me up bright and early at 7:45, and I was ready to start my day. Well, not quite ready, as I decided to roll over and get a few more minutes of sleep. When I next awoke, I realized the time to be 8:50 am, which was startling, Continue Reading »

Day 27 – New York City

Posted on July 24, 2022

By Evan Today is a sad day because it’s my last day on Etgar. We started off the day by taking the subway down to Battery Park. While at the park we talked about how immigrants came to the U.S. and through Ellis Island. We also discussed where our ancestors came from as well as Continue Reading »

Day 28 – NYC

Posted on July 25, 2021

by Allie Sigl       For those brave enough to get up early, the day began by heading to Esse-a-Bagels. Debatably the best bagels on the east coast, Esse features only the boldest cream cheese flavors and is often famous for giving more cream cheese than bagel.     We then went back to Continue Reading »

Day 27 – NYC

Posted on July 24, 2021

by Jordan Cascade    Like all great NYC adventures, we started the day with bagels. Compared with the taste of stale, unflufffy bagels from Holiday Inns and La Quintas, today’s everything with egg and cheese was a treat. We took the subway to the Marlene Meyerson JCC to meet with Ruth Messinger and Joy Levitt. Continue Reading »

by Max Orston On Sunday morning we left our hotel, the Cambria, at 9:00am. The Cambria had been our home for the past three nights, and I personally loved the rooms and services they offered. Earl arrived with the bus, and we cleared out our rooms and loaded up. However, we didn’t start our day Continue Reading »

Day 26 – New York City

by Jacob Hanai Today started off with a pretty long bus ride from middle of nowhere Pennsylvania to one of the largest cities in the United States, New York City. For lunch, we got to stop at a Wawa, which is something that is very fun for me because of the lack of Wawas down Continue Reading »
