FACILITIES

A short walk from exciting destinations such as the Statue of Liberty, the World trade Center, the New York Stock Exchange and the Federal Reserve Bank, MIM provides a superb academic, professional, and cultural experience in the Big Apple. Students can rest assured that there will never be a dull moment in the “city that doesn’t sleep.” Famous for its culture, restaurants, museums and nightlife, New York City is also a great destination for study abroad due to its ease of transportation via the NYC subway system.

 

By attending MIM, students are given the exceptional opportunity to live and learn in an exciting metropolis, which provides them with the international perspective necessary to compete in our increasingly global society.

 

Our facilities, located within Nyack College on the 17th floor at 2 Washington Street, downtown Manhattan include:

  • Technology enhanced classrooms, creating new opportunities in teaching and learning by integrating networking, digital, and audio-visual technologies
  • State-of-the-art computer labs
  • Library
  • Lounge areas

 

By Subway

Take the 4, 5, 6 or 7 line to Bowling Green Station and cross Battery Place over to Washington Street.

HOUSING SUGGESTIONS

You have several ways for finding an apartment. This listing is adapted to each budget. Living in New York has its price, depending on the area you chose to live in and a kind of apartment you chose to rent, rental prices can differ considerably.

 

Manhattan:

Accommodations are expensive particularly in downtown and midtown areas. But its gets cheaper as you go uptown: Harlem and Washington Heights, but some parts are unsafe so you should visit the area before renting.

Living outside Manhattan is less expensive, and you can find very nice residential areas.

Brooklyn:

Neighborhoods in Brooklyn can be very different according the neighborhood. Best places are Williamsburg and Brooklyn Heights. Avoid unsafe areas like Bedford-Stuyvesant, Bushwick, East New York or Sunset Park.

Harlem:

Spanish Harlem, just north of Central Park, is a good area for renting; we recommend Westside. There are lot of cheap stores for food and retail.

Staten Island:

20 minutes by ferry (free) from Manhattan. It is a more residential and generally more suburban area.

Queens:

Many parts of Queens are middle class and accessible by public transportation. Parts closest to Manhattan are Long Island City, Astoria, Sunnyside and Woodside.

Bronx:

Most parts are not safe and far from Manhattan. But the generally safe areas of the Bronx are Riverdale and Kingsbridge.

Real Estate Agencies

Since the apartment market is so narrow, there are many brokers that offer their help for a commission, which sometimes is very high.

Fees range between ½ to 1 month of rental or 15% of the annual rent. 1 month fee is usually for rentals of 6 month or less; 15% of the annual rent total, are usually for 1 year rentals.
