The Surreal Life

Picture waking up every morning to the heartbeat of Manhattan. It can be your extraordinary reality in The New Yorker Residence. You'll enjoy all the comforts of EHS's signature all-inclusive dorm-style living, situated in the luxury of NYC's iconic New Yorker Hotel. EHS New Yorker residents will enjoy a recently-renovated student lounge and kitchen/dining area, complete with a library, pool table, flat-screen TVs and more. Convenience is key here; the residence is situated steps away from Times Square, Broadway, Madison Square Garden, Macy's flagship store and the Empire State Building. It's also a quick subway ride away from schools like Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT), John Jay School of Criminal Justice, New York University (NYU), and so many more. When you want to relax, you can sit in the shade and people watch in Horace Greeley Park, and Central Park is only a few subway stops away. Talk about the best of all worlds!
