5 College Junior

Local Area: The school is located in New York City, there is everything you could possibly imagine around the school and I'd not, transportation is not an issue.

4 College Junior

Local Area: There are several trains that come into this area, making it an easy access school. Local restaurants provide student discounts which is an awesome advantage. In addition, the World Trade center, Wall Street, and the Seaport are all amazing places to sight see and shop.

5 College Freshman

Local Area: You'll literally be at one of the greatest places in the world. The financial district is a bit quieter than other Manhattan neighborhoods, but it still offers a lot with the Seaport, the Brooklyn Bridge, City Hall, World Trade Center, and Wall Street. Plus, Pace is surround by a subway stations that have a bunch of different lines (A, C, E, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, J, Z) that can take you all over the city. There are countless museums, concert venues, Broadway shows, shopping areas, nightclubs, and restaurants. Most students are pretty nice and outgoing.

3 College Sophomore

Local Area: Nightlife is not very popular in town. Shopping is one of the best things available, considering two of the biggest malls are located within 15 minutes of the school.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Most people who reside outside of New York think that New York City is a dangerous, crime-filled city, but their opinions will change once they visit New York in just a day. It is true that New Yorkers walk a fast pace, but they will stop and acknowledge a person's existence if he or she has a question about directions. Though pollution is inescapable, the Big Apple is always brimming with energy; every day seems to have more positive events than negative. There are a lot of clothing stores, both expensive and inexpensive. There are plenty of restaurants, as well, both high-end and cheap eats. One can do so much in New York City. It's definitely the best place to go exploring, but people should stay away from sketchy alleys at night. There are students everywhere—all over from NYU, Fordham, Columbia, etc. Many of these students are normal teenagers, just looking for a good time.

New York City has so much to offer, in many forms of entertainment that can overwhelm people who are not familiar with the city. It's important that a person doesn't try to do everything in a day, to take a considerable amount of time exploring one place. Many items are very pricey, and a person's wallet can easily deflate. If a person is overwhelmed by the constant activity, there are many relaxing parks, including Central Park, where one can gain a piece of mind and freedom from the hectic-ness.
