You wake up ready for your first day at the internship of your dreams. You hop on the subway teeming with people going to work, school, Central Park and more, and you realize you are, at least for 13 weeks, a New Yorker! New York Term offers you the chance to live, study and work in the most densely populated and diverse city in the United States, a city with more than 80 museums, 150+ venues for live theater, movie theaters that range from a five-story IMAX screen to dozens of art-house spots and every type of restaurant you can imagine. Your classroom is Wall Street, the United Nations, Broadway, the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Metropolitan Opera, Carnegie Hall, the Statue of Liberty, the Freedom Tower, the tallest building in the United States (the view from the observation area is breathtaking), Queens, Harlem, Brooklyn and the Bronx.
