Ride the subway to New York University and you’ll get to class in around 12 minutes; students at Parsons School of Design have a 17-minute commute. Travel in the opposite direction and you’ll get to Columbia University in 17 minutes - there are several subway stations near your home. If you have your own car, garage parking is available and if not, you can take advantage of the Let’s Drive NYC Car-Sharing Program.
After a busy day studying or exploring Manhattan, make your way home to The Ritz Plaza to relax on the outdoor terrace or catch some rays on the rooftop sundeck while you gaze out upon the city skyline. Stay in shape with a few laps in the swimming pool, or work up a sweat in the on-site fitness center.
When you’re done, head back to your studio or apartment, grab a cold drink and sit out on your balcony until you cool down. Freshen up with a hot shower in your private bathroom, choose a new outfit from your spacious closet, then visit the Member’s Lounge to see who’s about. With regular residents’ events from Yappy Hour (happy hour for you and your dog) to monthly wine tastings and comedy nights, you’ll always find something to do at The Ritz Plaza.
Whether you’re studying or relaxing, your Verizon Wi-Fi and television bundles makes it easy to get online or watch your favorite TV shows. Spread your books out on the dining room table and get to work, then kick back in the living area and watch a movie when you’ve finished.
It’s easy to concentrate on your studies, because all the details have been taken care of: there’s an on-site laundry room and management office, and the live-in superintendent and valet service are available whenever you need help and advice.
