Finally, my final Greyhound bus! Thankfully this one is not to long, New Haven to New York… When I arrive in New York I check into the The Local NYC hostel which has an amazing roof top view! Such a nice hostel and really cool inside too. Tomorrow I am staying with another host, Takaya who is a Phd student at NYU. This time I am staying in the Upper West Side which is giving me a really good feel for all the different neighbourhoods in NY. Takaya and his housemates are super cool and friendly and we go to their friends birthday party in a super trendy NY bar as well as going to the High Line in New York. He also loves photography so we have a great day taking pics along this is a really cool walkway /public park on the West Side of Manhattan. Built on a historic, elevated rail line, the High Line was always intended to be more than a park. You can walk through gardens, view art and experience performances all whilst enjoying a truly unique perspective of New York City!
In New York I met with one of the Graduate Research Assistants for the Camp Fire Program in Wildlife Conservation. Her. research interests include large carnivore ecology, conflict mitigation and conservation and is studying grizzly bears in Alaska. At the American Museum of Natural History (AMNH) I attended the Hack The Deep challenge, a 24 hour solution-building event, produced by AMNH’s BridgeUP: STEM, an educational initiative focused on the intersection of computer science and science with an after-school program for high school girls and underrepresented youth. The aim is to discover innovative solutions to challenges in scientific computing, and a collaboration among technologists, hackers, and Museum scientists. High school teams presenting their work first, followed by each of the professional teams.
