NYU Law - pictures of the residences please

Postby ColumbiaGirl1984 » Sun Jan 24, 2010 1:25 pm

Hello!
I am looking at the residences for NYU. They have some pictures on their website, but I was wondering if anyone had some pictures of their apartments in Mercer or D'Agostino. I just want to see some pictures of actual students' living conditions and not the marketing pictures they put on their website that probably make the dorms look really nice.
I am going to the admitted students days though, so I will most likely see some rooms when I am there, but until then in case anybody has some pictures they want to share, that'd be great!!

Thanks

I'm just excited to see if this turns into the new "Pictures of UK Law"

Is electricity included? Or should I turn off a few lights?

Yes. NYU actually provides its students with an estate, which would probably cost close to a billion dollars, in the middle of Manhattan.

I can take pictures of my room . . . when I clean it up.

NYU is ranked 33 for undergrad studies. I didn't know it was ranked that low. I though it was in the top 10 alongside of Columbia

Here is a website:

http://www.law.nyu.edu/housing/oncampus ... /index.htm

The photos are fairly accurate. Most people live in D'ag or Mercer. If you click the links to the left, there are pictures and floor plans. Keep in mind, these dorms are located in basically the most expensive real estate in NYC, so you aren't going to get a whole lot for your money. But it's convenient and a lot of students do it, at least their first year.

Also keep in mind that it's a complete ripoff. I've went to NYU undergrad, so although I'm not familiar with law housing, I can't imagine it being that much different from the better undergrad places. It's gonna be cramped as hell, and you'll realize the joys of living in the most expensive city in america.

I don't know what you mean by "cramped as hell," but bedrooms in Mercer are huge. The only draw back is that we don't have a living room, but I don't really care about that. D'ag on the other hand . . . yeesh, small rooms.

yeah, specific apartment types in Mercer are reserved for those who want family housing.

Also, I was going to add pictures of my room but it literally looks just like the pictures they post online, just not as decorated.

Yes, I love the family housing. The biggest downside for most people is not having a living room, but with family housing, we do. Our apartment is the exact same as the apartments for 2 single people, except that what would normally be a 2nd bedroom is a living room. I'm in D'ag, though--I know some people with family housing in Mercer that are not pleased b/c they are living in a studio. To be fair, though, I would be fine living in that studio with my husband, so perhaps my expectations are low :)

My apartment is messy right now, but it will be clean for friends visiting this weekend, so I can take pictures then.
