CCNY has benefited from recent endowments, using funds to construct a new engineering building and a new architecture building, which is still underway. The two modern structures greatly enhance the campus landscape, which also includes the neo-Gothic architecture visible in Harris Hall, Wingate Hall. However, the neo-Gothic style is best encapsulated in the famous Shepard Hall, the castle on the hill, which has been the visible architectural prize of City College since the early twentieth century.
The only aberration is the Marshaak Building, which stands unwelcoming, held by multiple pillars to keep it straight while it undergoes continuous maintenance. The other edifice that lacks majesty is the NAC, a building designed by a prison architect; the building's interior, with its fogged windows and tight corridors, seems like a prison simulation. Despite its short comings, the NAC does house a large library—four stories high—that is a great place to study and relax. There is also the Hoffman Student Lounge, which is another nice place to relax. The Wingate building houses the gym, which provides the basic equipment and space for working out. There are lockers and showers available, as well as a track that runs above the gym.
