Manhattan College is located in the city of all cities—New York. There is a vast number of opportunities to succeed in the city that never sleeps. The internship opportunities are great for any college student looking for experience. Students can land an internship with top-notch companies like ABC television, MTV, or maybe even magazines like Cosmopolitan. New York City is the city of opportunity and a city full of energy and life. A college student has a long, long list of things to do, and New York can help students check off their list.
For students who like sports, they have every major sport playing in the city, with the exception of football which plays across the river in New Jersey. Students can go check out the Yankees, the Rangers, and the Knicks—all in the city. For students who aren't big fans of sports and instead enjoy shopping, New York has plenty of that, too. There are stores at the famous Fifth Avenue, like Armani Exchange, the NBA Store, Gucci, and many more. A short walking distance from Fifth Avenue is Columbus Circle, which has stores like Borders Bookstore and is located right in front of Central Park. There is also the famed Soho Shopping District, which has a lot of famous stores with the latest trends, and a mall by Madison Square Garden, which has some more trendy stores. For movie-goers, to say New York has plenty of theaters is an understatement. Times Square has two theaters alone. Students can also go out to dinner at many of the great restaurants, check out the hottest nightclubs and bars, and visit many great tourist attractions like the Empire State Building and the Statue of Liberty. This is the perfect city for any college student because of the people and the opportunities. New York has its own saying: "New York, New York—so nice, they say it twice."
