4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Being so close to the city, you can honestly take the train and be on your way. Everyone goes to Jasper's Deli whether its at 5pm or at 3am, it's the go to place for a nice meal. It's not too expensive, nor is it too far. It's not a five war meal, but as a struggling college student, it's pretty dang close.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Broadway Joe's pizza is by far the best place to go. There are plenty of places to go - sandwiches, pizza, wings, Chinese, Thai, sushi... all pretty reasonably priced and easy to get to, especially close to student housing which is a huge benefit.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: I love the burrito shop right next to campus and who doesn't love diner or deli food when you're a broke college student.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Living in NYC, there is always a good place to eat. Around campus (no more than a 10 minute walk away) there are 4 delis, one diner, two pizza places, many bars, and an amazing italian restaurant. The delis are open 24/7 and are great after-partying food. Most accept student dining dollars, and vegetarians/vegans shouldn't have a problem dining out.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: It's NYC, off-campus food is great compared to other colleges. Very convenient, good, and affordable

In New York City, the amount of restaurants is endless. The area around Manhattan College has a lot of off-campus food joints. Right down at the bottom of the hill is Dunkin' Donuts, Subway, Broadway Joe's Pizza, and a Chinese restaurant. There's also Burger King, Jake’s Steakhouse, and a Mexican restaurant. The area near Overlook Manor has another pizza place, Goodfellas Pizza. If you walk down to 238th Street, you have Domino's Pizza, McDonald's, and the Riverdale Diner. A quick subway ride (or a walk, if you dare) to 225th Street takes you to Applebee’s restaurant and another McDonald's. There is also another pizza place around this area. On 231st Street, there's a Kentucky Fried Chicken and a Popeye’s Chicken around the corner, plus some restaurants across the street.

There are more restaurants the farther you get into New York City. Times Square has a lot of restaurants. Washington Heights and Harlem both have some. Plus, you have the Fordham Road section of the Bronx which has a lot of fast food restaurants. This is the beauty of being in New York City—you never have a shortage of things to eat, and in all likelihood, these places will be open until at least midnight.
