Community


Both our campuses are located in pleasant residential communities in the northern reaches of the Bronx, surrounded by private, attractive middle-class homes and apartment buildings that comprise the neighborhoods known as Morris Park, Eastchester and Pelham Parkway. Adjacent Westchester County and Manhattan are easily accessible by car or public transportation.

Leisure time activities, unsurpassed
anywhere in the world, are only minutes away. The famous Bronx Zoo, the Botanical Gardens and the Wave Hill Public Gardens and Cultural Center are close at hand, and so is Yankee Stadium. Golfers can play at the Van Cortlandt Park course, one block from the West Campus. Tennis courts and riding stables are handy, and sailors can rent boats at City Island, a few minutes from the East Campus.

For the culturally inclined, Lehman College Center for the performing arts offers opera, concerts, theatre and dance. It is approximately ten minutes from the West Campus, making it accessible even with a resident's busy schedule.

Farther away, but easily reached by car or public transportation, are the many miles of beaches along the shores of Long Island Sound and the Atlantic Ocean. Skiing and other winter sport activities abound in New York State and New England, or to the west in New Jersey and Pennsylvania.

Manhattan, the cultural and fashion center of the country, is a half-hour away from either campus by subway, bus or car. It offers a superb smorgasbord of theatres, operas, concerts, museums, galleries, boutiques, world-famous department stores, sporting events, historical landmarks, restaurants and an endless variety of other attractions. Its neighborhoods, from Wall Street to Chinatown, Greenwich Village to Fifth Avenue and the elegant East Side, are best sampled by walking, providing many fascinating hours of recreation.
