    • Contemporary sustainability issues 

    The city's geography, with its scarce availability of land, is a contributing factor in making it one of the most densely populated cities in the United States. Environmental issues are chiefly concerned with managing this density, making it a great alternative case-study for geography students looking at how humans adapt and transform their landscape.

    Take a walk along the High-Line an innovative way of creating green space in this densely populated, land-straped city or celebrate the city's vertical skyline at the Skyscraper Museum. Our 5 and 6 day trips to New York will give you plenty of time to balance these educational visits with the time to visit the city's famous attractions and landmarks to create a school trip of a lifetime.

  • Reasons to Visit
    1. The Skyscraper Museum

      Located in New York City, the world's first and foremost vertical metropolis, The Skyscraper Museum celebrates the City's rich architectural heritage and examines the historical forces and individuals that have shaped its successive skylines. Through exhibitions, programs and publications, the Museum explores tall buildings as objects of design, products of technology, sites of construction, investments in real estate, and places of work and residence.

    2. High Line

      This once disused and derelict former freight rail line has been turned into one of the most innovative and inviting public spaces in New York City. Black steel columns that once supported abandoned train tracks now hold up an elevated park offering a unique vantage point to the city. You can sit surrounded by carefully tended plants and take in the Hudson River views, or you can walk the line as it slices through the cityscape un-interrupted by street crossings or traffic lights to wait for.

    3. New York Transit Museum

      It’s impossible to imagine New York City without a mass transit system, the city relies on subways, commuter trains, buses, bridges and tunnels to move millions of people around each day. It is one of the largest mass transit systems in the world with 468 stations, 842 miles (1355 km) of track and it runs 24hrs a day. Students will have the opportunity to learn about the intricacies of this network first-hand.
