At The Amsterdam Residence, you’re a 10-minute metro ride from Columbia University, and a 15-minute metro ride from Fordham University Lincoln Center. With such a short commute, you can afford a few extra minutes in bed before lectures. When you do get up, choose an outfit from the dresser and get ready in the privacy of your own room. On weekends, walk two minutes to your closest bus stop or three minutes to the nearest metro whenever you feel like exploring.
In between adventures, come home to your air-conditioned bedroom. With furnishings like bed linens and towels provided, you’ll feel at home from the moment you move in. Hang your coat up in the closet, then use the Wi-Fi to get started on your assignments at your bedroom desk. When you’re finished, wander down the corridor to the communal lounge to catch up on your favourite TV series, or hang out with your fellow residents.
With a daily cleaning service included in your rent, you won’t have to waste time housekeeping. Instead, lace up your sneakers and head to nearby Riverside Park for an afternoon jog along the banks of the Hudson. When you get home, rinse off with a shower in the shared bathroom, then take your clothes to the downstairs laundry facilities. In the evening, eat dinner with your friends in the communal kitchen, or explore the Upper West Side’s myriad of restaurants. Try Jacob’s Pickles for Southern comfort food, or Spring Natural Kitchen for upscale farm-to-table cuisine.
