Apartment Stoop 2

Here is a photo of an apartment stoop in Washington Square. These buildings, which were originally townhouses, are now owned by New York University (NYU) and turned into offices. The beautiful gardens in front of the buildings are probably tended to by gardeners who work for the university, making it one of the most beautiful streets in the city.

NYU is one of the more expensive private schools in the country. According to its website, the cost of tuition at its art school is around $40,000/year with an additional $12,000/year for room and board. So a student could easily spend over $200,000 over 4 years to get a Baccalaureate degree here.

So where did you go to school? Was it a famous school? What did you study?
