Photo by myself at NYU on West 4th Street, in the Village.
Vanderbilt Hall is a part of NYU Law School, and it has its own courtyard. The brick and traditional ornament help create its academic image.
New York University owns several buildings in this area. It's difficult to imagine kids going to college in the middle of Manhattan, but there are several colleges located here.
By the way, the word 'campus' comes from the Latin word meaning 'field'. Learning institutions are by tradition unified areas set in the landscape. NYU's buildings are separated by streets and other buildings, but are generally located in one area.
A friend of mine went to NYU years ago. She said it was difficult, since as a student she didn't have much money. Yet here she was, thrown in an exciting city full of stores and lots of advertising.
I personally can't imagine going to school here and concentrate long enough to do homework!
