so I got on a tourbus with teenage high school band kids to New York City

What was I thinking. Obviously I was not. Left Wed night at 9pm with 47 teenagers and arrived in NYC at 8am. I believe I was forever crippled by the bus seat. Had a tour guide show us around on the bus then gave us a walking tour of Hells Kitchen and the Spiderman building. We walked all over not sure where ww went. At 4 had dinner then off to Phantom of the Opera. Home at midnight then up at 7am for round 2. Walked Central Park, played and toured the Intrepid, hit Times Square, ate at Buca , went to Twin Towers, and finally Rockefeller Center and waited 1.5 hours before heading up for the best view of the city.. FINALLY off 5th Ave by midnight....bed at 1am. Up at 630am.....check out by 830. Off to Staton Island Ferry for boar ride, full tour of Ground Zero.. (omg), lunch at Harbor Pier mall, then China Town, then Soho.....and here it is 7pm....time to go home. Hopefully at 7am I will unfold my aged crippled bus deformed body...gather my luggage, and cry all the way home. Pet my cats and dog, kiss my husband, and go to bed.

I had a BLAST!

Ya'll need to do a teenage band trip once in your life.

I'll let ya'll know if I make it home....need to pet my car. :-)

What a band that went to NYC and it was not for Macy's Thanksgiving parade. Lived in NJ and worked in NYC. Sounds like you all hit a lot of good spots. Walked thur World Trade from 1974 to 2001 every work day going to work a block away.

I work with college students and they are exhausting at times, so I can't even begin to imagine a trip to NYC with nearly four dozen high school students. You're a brave soul, It's~just~me~~!!!

As a veteran of many high school road trips via the old yellow bus I have but one question? Did you count the kids before returning? I forgot to do that one time.........it was not good!

Great story. I was a band jock in High School and it brought back lots of fond memories. The good news is that you've been 16 before so you know what they're thinking before they do.

Hope you recover quickly.
