Experience New York City

Making the World Smarter, Safer and Healthier


Take a bite out of the Big Apple!

All of New York City is your campus at the Katz School of Science and Health.


Near Campus

Yeshiva University’s campuses provide easy access to what New York City has to offer: restaurants, pubs, shopping, exercise, art and entertainment. 

Arts and Culture – New York City is home to many of the world’s premier museums, design houses, and performing arts centers, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art (“The Met”), the Museum of Modern Art (MOMA), and the Whitney as well as smaller spaces such as the Neue Galerie, the Noguchi Museum, and New Museum. As a student, you’ll have access to discounted tickets for famous shows on Broadway, on-the-rise Off-Broadway shows, and experimental theatre Off-Off-Broadway.  

Food and Nightlife – The city offers everything from hip and trendy bistros to cheap and cheerful cafes to organic and local open-air markets. Check out Coffee Shoppe, where all of the wait staff are former models, grab ramen at Ippudo, or a slice at John’s Pizza in Times Square. During our annual Restaurant Week, you can enjoy the prix-fixe menu at many of NYC’s finest restaurants for just $28.  

Sports and Fitness – Run along the Hudson, bike around Manhattan to Brooklyn, or ride along the west side highway to the famous Cloisters, gym and fitness (as low as $10/month).


Exploring the City

Each of New York City’s five boroughs — Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, Bronx, and Staten Island — has its own unique flavor. 

Every borough is a blend of new and old, innovation and history; there’s always something to do in the City That Never Sleeps! Check out to learn more.  

The Bronx – Cheer on the Yankees or spend a day at the famous Bronx Zoo.  

Brooklyn – Enjoy the emerging arts culture, try unique restaurants like Pig Beach Burger, or take a walk across the historic Brooklyn Bridge.  

Staten Island – Ride the (free!) ferry and hang out in some of the city’s greatest parks and beaches.  

Queens – Hop on the subway to experience a different kind of cuisine at every stop in this richly diverse borough.  

Manhattan – You don’t have to go far from campus for adventure. In our home borough, you can tour a skyscraper in the morning, eat a picnic lunch in Central Park, explore an art or history museum in the afternoon, and catch a Broadway show in the evening.


And Beyond

If you want to get away from the buzz of the city, New York features some of the best hiking, skiing, and beaches on the East Coast. 

From Yeshiva’s campus, you and your friends can make a trip to the star-studded Hamptons and spend the day on Montauk Beach. If you prefer the mountains, upstate New York is just a 90-minute bus ride from midtown. Enjoy hiking, rock climbing, and skiing in the Catskill Mountains or tour some of the quirky shops in New Paltz. 

Breaks and long weekends are your chance to take in sights around the US starting with Washington DC and Boston. If your schedule and budget permits, Miami Beach is two-and-a-half-hour flight from NYC and LA, San Francisco, and the Grand Canyon can be done in five hours non-stop.
