I work on the west side and I pass 66th street on the 1. There are always lots of people getting on or off.

It definitely looks a lot bigger without all the people lol.

It was a Sunday at about 12:30pm. I'd imagine they were at church/brunch/lunch? There were actually a lot more people around, I just tried to snap pics without as many people in them.

I go to school in Chelsea/midtown and whenever I'm over there (by way of the 1) during the day it's so dead!

Darling, thank you for posting these. *sigh*


OS or anyone else - is there a special relationship between Fordham and Lincoln Center because of the proximity? Like cheaper Met/NY Phil/ballet tix? I went to high school in the city and remember getting super cheap NYC Opera and Ballet tickets.


There are various ways of getting them cheap, but when I went to student services, they just had discount Broadway tickets. Student rush tickets can be bought directly at the Met, or else you can get the Agnes & Karl Varis rush tickets, or get them through friends affiliated with Lincoln Center. You won't be paying full price-- no worries.

could i potentially be waiting all summer?

Hi! This was just discussed a few pages back, but I believe the short answer is that April 15th is the earliest WL candidates can expect to be reconsidered.

It's not THAT cold in NYC. Even for most of the winter. At least not compared to a lot of the midwest, from my experience. You'll have a fair number of 30-40 degree days, maybe a few days where it gets down to the teens, but that's been a rare occurance lately.

That's part of the reason I like it here, heh.

my one experience in nyc in winter (other than... you know... westchester) I froze my little arse off. st patty's day parade. brrr. and another time, in the late fall, a cab kicked us out in the rain. not cool.

...I fully expect to freeze. but I also plan on living as close as possible to a subway entrance.

I agree. I've lived here for... well, almost 20 years and ya, it's cold over by Riverside Drive in the winter... but that's mostly a wind thing. Otherwise, NYC is nothing compared to Chicago or Minneapolis.

It's a little worse where I live, in Staten Island. It gets way more snow and a bit colder, but the city is pretty moderate. I love the cold weather though, because when it's warm, my hair frizzes. :D

Ha, you must hate the beach. It's actually the only place my hair looks good. Everyone else gets frizzy and disheveled and I get pretty =D

To nygrrrl and other people who see Fordham as their number one and have NOT heard back from them at all:

Would you ever consider writing them a LOCI telling them that if accepted, you would absolutely enroll? Or is this bad luck and should not be done unless you're placed on a WL?

LOL, well.... since Fordham is actually the ONLY school to which I applied (and they know that!), I am on the fence about writing a LOCI... :lol:

LOL I'm being serious here!

Should I email or mail in a LOCI? How long should I wait from complete date to contact them?
