There is: the Museum of Television and Radio and the Tenement Museum that gives you a fascinating history of New York's Lower East Side.

From Media to Education to Finance to Hospitals, New York City has some of the most accomplished companies headquartered here. Studying at Mercy College puts you close to some of the most prestigious internships, mentorship and networking opportunities available.

From Broadway to Off-Off-Broadway, Chelsea Art Galleries and Williamsburg Loft Spaces, the Metropolitan Opera to the Bowery Ballroom - New York City offers the finest in both established and up and coming artists and performers.

Even though it is a large city, a city over 8 million, New York still has a neighborhood feel. From Chinatown to Harlem, the Upper East Side to the East Village, Little Italy, the West Village and the Financial District. Each neighborhood claims distinct food, attractions and cultural flavor.
