Like is there a real lack of open areas? or is it a concrete jungle like I assume what most of NYC is?
for the record, haven't ever been to NY or larger east coast cities.
It is a city. It is NYC, the most urban city in the US. The law school is on a main drag, and it is surrounded by tons of other buildings. The undergrad is across the street, which is secluded from the city. It has all the other schools buildings, along with some trees. A little bit of grass. NYC, in general, doesn't have grass--you have to go the Central Park for that, which isn't too far. Very different from rural areas.
