Summer is great in New York City, but that may not stop you from feeling the itch to get out of the metropolis and enjoy the sunshine on a beach or go on a hike or head anywhere beyond the urban sprawl. So, be like a true New Yorker and head out of town for a day! For ideas of day trips you can take out of the city, check out these online resources:

NYU Ticket Central may now be closed, but that doesn’t mean the window of student discount opportunity has shut in your face forever! For those of you wishing to see a new museum farther off the beaten path, like Museo del Barrio or the Rubin Museum (NYC is more than just the Met, MoMA, and AMNH!), then use your NYUCard for free admission to a freeseum. There are amazing museums out there of all sorts, and they would love to have you visit!
There is plenty to do in New York City, so don’t miss out on some wonderful opportunities this summer! You can stay on top of what’s going on in the five boroughs using some of these NYC publications:
Time Out New York
Keeping New Yorkers in-the-know, this magazine has a comprehensive calendar listing events in the city and countless “Best Of New York” articles as well as frequent lists of the top 30 things you should do in a given weekend.
This local newspaper is also a fantastic reference for events, activities, and random excitements in the city.
This daily e-newsletter lists festivals, concerts, and other happenings around the city through September.
Welcome to New York City, Summer Session II students!
To help you get the most out of your time at NYU and in the city this summer, the NYU Student Resource Center (SRC) is providing all summer students with a Summer City Guide, an e-newsletter you will receive regularly at your NYU email! You can also find archived issues of the Summer City Guide and more information about happenings and resources in New York on the Student Resource Center’s summer website.
Keep an eye on your email for the regular Guide and if you have any questions about the information listed, contact the SRC!
Have questions (any question under the sun) about your courses, academics, or resources and services at NYU or in NYC? Look no further than the Academic Resource Center (ARC) and the Student Resource Center (SRC) on campus, highlighted in a previous post. They can help you find anything! Really.
Summer Session II has begun, and those of you new to campus may be wondering where you can find things around here: campus resources, local banks, grocery stores, etc. To help you find your way around, check out the online neighborhood resources highlighted in a previous post!
It is the final week of Summer Session I, and we would love to hear from you about your experiences inside and outside the classroom this summer! All Summer Session I students should have received information about the Summer Student Survey via their NYU email addresses.
