Institutional Inspiration

Creative consciousness and educational excellence in the Village.

Life in the Village offers an array of cultural experiences. Churches, art galleries, theaters, and more dot the neighborhood. It’s time to venture out and see some of the places Villagers adore. Start your day with a walk up 6th Avenue and pass by the gothic Jefferson Market Library, before stopping by two Episcopal Churches with deep ties to the City’s history. After a great walk filled with art and religion, end your day at the Public Theater with performances that are sure to please. 

New York City is filled with prestigious universities and the Village is no exception with NYU, the New School, and Cooper Union. Walk through Washington Square Park or head north just out of the district to Union Square and you’ll students out and about soaking up the sun. Every institution not only enrolls smart, dedicated, and diverse students, but also has a rich educational and cultural history.
