While the Washington Square Fountain is great, the stifling heat of a New York City summer could make anyone wish that a cool, clear swimming pool were waiting just across the Park. Between 1957 and 1985, that dream was a reality for students, faculty, and staff of NYU’s School of Law, who enjoyed access to a pool in the basement of Hayden Hall, then a dormitory for School of Law students.
On August 2, 39 riders from 14 countries will set out on the world’s longest and toughest horse race—the seventh annual Mongol Derby. Among the five riders from the United States is NYU alumna Michelle Tanaka (CAS ’12).
