  • I enjoyed my time in the area. It is in a special and diverse part of the city. An interesting way to spend an afternoon!

  • NYU is my daughters dream school we drove 3 hours for a campus tour and it was the most disappointing thing I've ever been to. We literally saw NOTHING I know less about this school then before I went. The entire tour consisted of yapping around the streets and standing outside buildings or in hallways. We saw not one classroom, school or dorm room, we literally didn't see anything! I'm so annoyed and disappointed. I'm not sure if it's the tour or the tour guide itself that was the problem but it wasn't okay.
  • i like eggs. eggs are nice. and so is nyu. ps: im a little fried egg trying to make it in the big vegan world pls send me some buttered bread
  • My son graduated from NYU Med School. Loved it and the wonderful, beautiful, cosmopolitan area. Carnegie Hall graduation was special. 🤗👍🏻
  • Finished my masters in social work after transfering from Columbia. Overall good experience as a student veteran (ex military) and administration very helpful on answering questions and providing direction.
  • Lynne McVeigh Molly Fermaglich Sharon Badal the female filmmaking staff at this school is probably responsible for me being named 1 in 6 female filmmakers to watch by Indiewire and Sydney Levine.
