What was the best dorm at NYU?

Stephanie: 3rd North for the courtyard!

Melissa: Rubin! Loved the atmosphere. And Lenny Kravitz used to hang out in the lobby

Andri: ‎7th Street all the way.

Mara: Hayden Hall is a classic!!...The pool, the piano room, the view right in front of the park... Priceless!

Elizabeth: Alumni Hall – it's close to campus (and, importantly, a Starbucks) and it was nice having my own bedroom.

Thomas: Back in the day the saying was, "Weinstein is where all the cool kids live."

Carla: Carlyle. The view of Union Square West is amazing! Lived there my entire undergrad. Loved it

Allyson: My duplex apartment at Water Street will be the nicest place I will ever have in NYC.

Lindsay: Broome St. Can't beat that location and the restaurants/shops. The rooms have great views and are huge, too. Loved it.
