Tom Wolfe once said, “One belongs to New York instantly, one belongs to it as much in five minutes as in five years.” New York is a city bursting with possibilities and opportunities, all just waiting to be embraced. From world-class hospitals to world-shaping technology to world-changing ideas and a world-champion attitude, New York is truly one of a kind. It’s literary, culinary, contemporary, and classic—and as a Columbia student, you’ll make the most of it all.
Where the whole world is just a subway ride away.
This is a city of discovery, and virtually every subway stop is alive with possibility. Here, you’ll find more museums, theaters, galleries, restaurants, street vendors, cafes, clubs and performance venues than you could explore in a lifetime. Every day in New York offers glimpses into new worlds, each one an opportunity to gain new perspectives and continually re-shape who you are.
