I feel incredibly lucky that I attend grad school in the best city in the world (though I might be biased since I grew up only thirty minutes from New York City). I go to City College of New York, or CCNY, in Hamilton Heights. The only downside is that I have to drive in and its getting rather expensive!
Anyway, the view from my school (since it's higher on a hill) and the buildings themselves are magnificent. Just take a look for yourself, and have a nice Monday!
P.S. -- Did you see The Hunger Games?! I thought it was so moving, and the lack of music at times was very emotionally effective and let the actors shine. Sometimes when I read a book and it's turned into a movie, I find many things that they changed that I don't like, but not this adaptation! If you haven't seen it yet, do! You won't regret it!
