New York Law School is located in TriBeCa—which stands for “Triangle Below Canal Street”—one of the hottest neighborhoods in Manhattan where high tech meets the old world charm of New York. In addition to the legal, business, and government offices just steps from the Law School, the area boasts quaint cobblestone streets, world-famous restaurants, hip galleries, and historic warehouse buildings that are popular among residents and visitors alike. TriBeCa’s thriving cultural scene is buzzing with activity year-round and features some of the City’s most popular annual events, including:
TriBeCa Film Festival – Created by Jane Rosenthal and Robert De Niro, this annual event draws hundreds of thousands of visitors to the neighborhood as the international film community and the general public experience the power of film and redefine the film festival experience.
Taste of TriBeCa – Visitors of this culinary festival dine on signature dishes from many of the area’s top restaurants, greet the chefs, listen to live music, and discover what makes TriBeCa a great neighborhood.
River to River Festival – The lively annual festival features over 500 events, including concerts, film screenings, gallery discussions, historical and educational tours, nature walks, sporting events, and readings.
In the midst of this vibrant region stands New York Law School’s ultra-modern campus. In 2009, NYLS opened a 235,000 square-foot, state-of-the-art facility that became the first institutional building project completed in downtown Manhattan after 9/11. The now iconic building houses the law library, classrooms, public event spaces, and several areas designed to promote student collaboration. It provides students with the latest technological advancements available in legal education today. The new building was recently featured in a Bisnow article about the “13 Most Amazing Law School Buildings“
