She is a successful novelist who spends most of her time at her Connecticut home (two hour train ride to NY) plue she travels a good bit. Typically, she is in NY about two days a week. Rent is nominal. . . almost like I am housesitting for her. My question is, if I decided to go to NY in June or July, what access (if any) would I have to the law school―perhaps the law library? If there is no access to NYU (without being a nuisance), I will likely stay put until August. What would you suggest?
As far as I know from the other buildings, you would need a valid student ID to access it. I also can't imagine what use the law library would be to you in terms of materials, unless you want to do the pre-class assignments in Aug from the actual law library? You can probably get some sort of a visitor pass to scope it out again, but I doubt they'll let you in daily.
If you want a place on campus to study or do general work, a lot of people use Think on Mercer or the Starbucks on W4th and University to study in, which will probably provide a reasonably representative example of summer studying at NYU. If you just want a good excuse to come hang out in the city and it's basically free AND you don't have a better/paid gig this summer it would be pretty fun and somewhat useful (in terms of getting yourself used to the neighborhood/staking out good study and lunch spots/determining good bars/MEETING PEOPLE IN GENERAL) to take this writer up on her offer.
Provided it's low drama. Dealing with unnecessary drama immediately before law school is silly.
