City College of New York (CCNY) is located in Harlem’s Hamilton Heights at 160 Convent Avenue. It is the first school of the City University of New York system. CCNY moved uptown in 1907 after it had outgrown its original facilities (the Free Academy building at 23rd Street and Lexington Avenue which is currently the location of Baruch College). CCNY is recognized for its Gothic architecture, but more so, for the high quality of education that its students receive. CCNY holds acclamations in numerous academic fields and is also known for being an important public meeting space for intellectual life. The departments of architecture, science, physics, engineering and computer technology are well known thanks to their professors who have been awarded Nobel Prizes.
At CCNY, there are many unique programs of study. The Bernard and Anne Spitzer School of Architecture is the only public school of architecture in New York City, the school of Education is the oldest in all of New York, and the division of Science offers students the chance to participate in cutting edge research.
