The Empire State Building, the Statue of Liberty, the Broadway and Central Park, you find them all in New York, along with abundant opportunities for world-class education. New York is a state in The USA’s mid-Atlantic and northeastern regions with a diverse geography. New York City comprises five boroughs: The Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens, and Staten Island. It shares an international border with Canada to the north. New York has a humid continental climate where you mostly experience hot and humid summers and long and cold winters.

It is a commercial urban centre in the country, bestowing enough space for ethnic and religious diversity. Given its vibrancy, liberated population and mix of various nationalities, NYC is also known as ‘the city that never sleeps’. The city is a hub of immigrant communities where you can find cultural corners: Chinatown, Korea town, Little Italy, etc. These corners might comfort you with fellow non-native togetherness in a new place. As the city is the hub for political, industrial, commercial and financial activities, proving itself as America’s land of opportunities, New York has boundless opportunities for education, employment and apprenticeships.

Traditionally nicknamed as ‘the Big Apple’, New York is home to various educational institutions, such as Barnard College, Columbia University, Juilliard University, New York University (NYU) and Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT), to name a few. If you are interested in performing arts, Juilliard would be your choice. Columbia University offers graduate programs in engineering, law, public health and many more. Most of the universities in New York offer undergraduate and graduate degrees in a wide range of fields, and NYU is one of them.

For a student, libraries are always the favourite place. New York City is a part of the New York Public Library System. You can plan an escape through books, maps and magazines whenever possible. Besides, you will never get bored while you are in the city. There are plenty of hobbies and activities to be involved in. You can catch a show in the theatre district or a boat ride around the Hudson River. Exploring Times Square is everyone’s dream and is in your footsteps. You would be attracted to the annual ball drop hosted at Times Square on New Year’s Eve. If you want to experience greenery away from the bustling crowd of Manhattan, Central Park and The Highline, offer you a great escape. Harlem is another exciting area with its historical and rich art culture.

New York is again a wonderful city for walking that helps you familiarize yourself with the surrounding. If you are to travel farther, there are subways, buses and cabs at your disposal. You can get a MetroCard with access to trains and buses that take you to almost every city corner. New York has food everywhere. So many restaurants around the city serve food at any hour of the day or night. With immigrants and international students, cuisines of various ethnicities and countries have entered the US kitchens and the city is not spared. You can order every cuisine, be at bars and restaurants and go with takeaways without thinking for a moment. From Pizza, hotdogs, and bagels to varieties of sandwiches, you will have plenty of familiar and ‘must-taste’ options to occupy and satisfy your taste buds.

Being the city of dreams of many aspiring students, New York is not among the cheapest cities to live in. Accommodation costs are high that dragging up your budget line. However, you can make it within your budget if you are a little savvy about your money. For a four-year degree, staying on-campus in a public college would cost you around $9,100 and around $8600 at private colleges.
