92y Residence: Student & Intern Housing

"Everything is in a 5 block radius. On Friday nights, everyone has their doors open and we’re all talking about where we want to go out. I live on the 11th floor, so I have big picturesque views of Manhattan…and my closet is huge."

–Sarah Schiffmann, 19, Paris
Student at New York Institute of Technology
