Local Atmosphere: John Jay is in the city of New York so the nightlife is great and the shopping is great but it has no campus and if you don't live in the city the traveling can add 2 hrs to your day depending on where you live

Local Atmosphere: Well, i always loved/love living in New York City. Its a very diverse area which makes it beautiful and interesting to come to my college every day because you get to see different types of things, people, its always an adventure in a way. There are a lot of restaurants to go eat at, malls to go shopping at, tourist attractions and also stores and pharmacies if you ever need anything. My college is located in Manhattan, the borough that never sleeps. There is always something to do, at anytime of the night. To me? Its a safe place, a safe environment. The students are friendly and helpful when you need directions or need help with something someone is always willing to help.
