NYC Summer School -- 5 Classes That Will Make you a Real New Yorker

August 8, 2018

New York City has the spirit of a fighter, the determination of a dreamer, and the swagger of a champion. Not everyone is capable of holding their own in this place so full of character, life, food stands, and skyscrapers.

But there are tricks to the trade -- lessons to be learned, experiences to dive into, and fears to conquer. Don't be afraid of a city deemed "the concrete jungle." You can and will become a concrete Tarzan, damnit.

So grab your vine and swing into NYC summer school. These NYC classes are bound to make you the ultimate New Yorker -- complete with just the right amount of charming arrogance that makes the Big Apple so welcoming.
