Departure from Bethlehem, PA:
With great anticipation and excitement, our team of agents gathered in Bethlehem, PA, early in the morning.

As we stepped into the vibrant square, we were greeted by electrifying lights, towering billboards, and a symphony of sights and sounds. Amidst the bustling crowd, we reveled in the spirit and excitement that makes Times Square so iconic. Group photos captured the essence of our dynamic team against the dazzling backdrop of this bustling hub.
Breakfast at Junior's Restaurant & Bakery:
To fuel ourselves for the adventures that awaited, we made our way to Junior's Restaurant & Bakery in One Astor Plaza. Located at the address: 1515 Broadway @, W 45th St, New York, NY 10036, this beloved establishment is renowned for its delectable dishes and mouthwatering desserts. We savored a scrumptious breakfast, bonding over shared culinary experiences and laughs shared around the table.
9/11 Memorial & Museum and Battery Park:
Next, we hopped on the subway to pay our respects and visit the solemn 9/11 Memorial & Museum. Walking through this hallowed ground, we honored the memory of the lives lost and gained a deeper understanding of the resilience and strength displayed by the city in the face of adversity. Adjacent to the memorial, we visited Battery Park, enjoying the serene beauty and breathtaking views of the Statue of Liberty.
Open Topped Bus Ride Through Manhattan:
To soak in the cityscape and iconic landmarks, we embarked on an open-topped bus ride that took us from Lower Manhattan to Hell's Kitchen.

The wind in our hair and the panoramic views on this mesmerizing journey created an immersive experience unlike any other.
