Hunter College, Here We Come
Located on perky Park Avenue, in the fine city of New York, Hunter College is a Top 40 college. Hunter Hawks are crazy about the arts and can earn degrees in art, dance, film, music, or theatre. But Hunter College takes arty to a different level with its number of research institutions. Some of these centers include the Center for Community and Urban Health, the CUNY Institute for Sustainable Cities, and the Center for Puerto Rican Studies. They also lend a hand to friends from different places with their International English Language Institute, where non-native speakers can take English courses. I'm sure alumni Nikolai Fraitrure and Nick Valensi, members of rock band The Strokes will agree, an education at Hunter College ain't half bad. And when you're done learning in the classroom, take a few lessons on life from Manhattan. I guarantee you that it'll give you an art education that can't be beat.
Bringin' It On Home in Brooklyn
A whopping 98% of Hunter College students live off campus, so you'll be sure to find some friends to split an apartment. Congratulations, the entire city of Manhattan (as well as parts of the other boroughs) is your oyster. Have at it. But that oyster pearl comes with a price, literally, so start your search soon and leave no stone unturned. Chances are you will not find an affordable apartment within walking distance of the campus, since no one without a wad of cash the size of a meteorite lives on the Upper East Side. Apartments in Queens or Brooklyn are affordable and popular options for most students. Due to the recent Brooklyn boom, it's become quite the destination for young people of all kinds. You'll be neighbors with folk singers, punk rockers, young parents…you name it, Brooklyn's got it. It also has a great selection of good eats in Park Slope and Williamsburg. My favorite spot is Bliss. For Brooklyn on a budget check this out. For seeing all the wonders that NYC has to offer, hop on the subway.
All About the Upper East Side
What do hoity-toity neighborhoods produce? Stellar thrift stores! Try Thriffany on 1st Ave between 74th and 75th. Another hot spot for vintage-lovers is Housing Works Thrift Store on 77th Street between 3rd and 2nd. Check out the Housing Works website. As we all know, the poor man's art museum is the art gallery. And the pickings are top-knotch in a money neighborhood like the Upper East Side. Showing artists like David Hockney and Mark Rothko, Acquavella Gallery is no hole-in-the-wall arts venue. Another fine art-viewing option on the Upper East Side is Allan Stone Gallery. For healthy and affortable eats, give Gobo a go.

I've got dogs. What are the best places in New York for being outdoors with pets?
Besides the obvious magnificent and world-famous Central Park, there are a wealth of great local parks where New York City residents can bring their favorite four-legged creatures for some fun in the sun. The famed Washington Square Park in Greenwich Village offers pooches a large dog run with water and tennis balls, as well as benches and some great people-watching for their owners. Dewitt Clinton Park in Hell's Kitchen is a quaint park with an abundance of plants and flowers, and a kiddie pool for the pups. Washington Heights Dog Park is another favorite local spot; a fairly large park with wood chips and plenty of shaded areas.

What areas of New York are safe for walking around at night?
New York City has such a wide variety of neighborhoods, and many of them are safer than one might expect. While it is always best to be alert at all times, some of the safest neighborhoods at night in the city include the Upper East Side, the Upper West Side, the West Village, also known as Greenwich Village, SoHo, and TriBeCa. The Financial District in downtown Manhattan is also a very safe neighborhood, and quiet at nighttime. The East Village and Lower East Side also tend to be safe at night, due to the bustling nightlife in these areas.
Is New York a good place for families?
It depends on what you're looking for. The schools run the gamut, and unless you're close to Central Park, it's going to be difficult to teach your children how to do things like ride a bike in the busy city streets of New York City. But, as far as safety is concerned, there's no need to fear the big city more than most other places in the United States; New York has an overall crime rate of 30 per 1,000 residents, making the crime rate here near the average for all cities and towns of all sizes in America, and one of the lowest in the nation for its size. With a diverse population, loads of museums, and no end to culture, New York is a great place to raise a family if you prefer the city to the country or suburbia--and you can afford the expense that comes along with it.
