About the city
Getting to NYU
The University is located at Washington Square Park on the island and borough of Manhattan in the neighborhood called Greenwich Village.
From La Guardia, Kennedy, or Newark Airport, take the airport shuttle bus to Port Authority Bus Terminal or Grand Central Station. From Port Authority, take the A or E subway downtown to West Fourth Street-Washington Square Station, or from Grand Central, take the Lexington Avenue subway (No. 6 train) downtown to Astor Place Station.
