In early October, a colleague and I were lucky enough to take a group of thirteen students to New York City. We had a fantastic time: it was definitely a case of lucky number thirteen.

We required each student to create a blog relating to the field trip. What follows, then, are thirteen images–one per student–each showing an aspect of our trip. Click on a photo to access the blog created by the photographer.
