Getting Around Manhattan and Beyond

The main entrance of NYIT’s Manhattan campus is housed in four buildings on Broadway and West 61 Street, between 60th and 61st Streets, just north of Columbus Circle. The Enrollment Services Center is located at 16 W. 61th St., at the corner of Broadway. Public transportation and taxis are recommended, due to the lack of parking and difficulty of driving in Manhattan.
