    This is a great idea!

    1) Name the location.

    The Cloisters (part of the Met system)

    2) Give the exact address.

    99 Margaret Corbin, Dr. New York, NY 10040

    3) Add an image to the location (in this post).


    4) Tell us why it’s your favorite spot.

    A solitary sliver of Medieval Europe in uptown Manhattan — peaceful and beautiful, the Cloisters is the place to visit when you want to get out of the city without leaving the city.

      Sorry–misunderstood the prompt! Let me try this again with my favorite *CUNY* spot —

      What is your favorite place in CUNY?
      1) Name the location.

      Hunter Skywalk

      2) Give the exact address.

      695 Park Ave, New York, NY 1006

      3) Add an image to the location (in this post).


      4) Tell us why it’s your favorite spot.

      Not only can you find amazing views straight down Lexington, but for a college with no traditional “quad” or college green the skywalk becomes the heart of campus — a place where students hang out between classes, study, and eat their lunch.

    Help us discover the hidden gems that CUNY has to offer! Respond to this forum thread with your answer to the following question:
    What is your favorite place in CUNY?
    1) Name the location.

    The LaGuardia C building hallway.

    2) Give the exact address.

    31-10 Thomson Avenue, Long Island City
    3) Add an image to the location (in this post).


    4) Tell us why it’s your favorite spot.

    Students give life to the place. I love when I catch a student taking a selfie in the hallway. I love that there’s a dance studio right next to our adult education offices so I can get a peak of ballroom dancing in between meetings. I love seeing young women primp in the bathroom, and I love seeing young love or lust take place too publicly in the hallway. And I love the first day of college classes, when everyone is eager and nervous and scared, and you know immediately who is new and lost and will be gratefully helped. Can’t get enough of it all.

    All students and faculty connected to the Futures Initiative should complete this prompt.

    Empire State Building at night, looking up

    1) The front steps of the Graduate Center, looking up at the Empire State Building, as I leave work at night

    2) 365 Fifth Avenue NY 10010

    3) Add an image to the location (in this post).

    4) As a Chicagoan, I’ve always wanted to live in New York City.  I do now.  Nothing makes me feel the reality of this incredibly exciting move than walking out of the GC at night, in the dark, and looking up to see the beautiful Empire State Building all lit up.  If we are lucky, maybe on May 22 the ESB will be decked out, for the first time ever, in CUNY blue, with a Futures Initiative gold needle and FI teal fins.  YES!

    A road winds around the back of the campus parallel to the ocean. There is about a mile of road and water just like this.

    Kingsborough– a little island

     

     

    1) Behind the M Building at Kingsborough
    2) 2001 Oriental BLVD
    3) Check.
    4) I like to walk this road before I head in to teach a class. You just feel like you’re close to edge of the world. There’s also something nice about being on a path between the ocean and the buildings. You’re neither here nor there.

    Mina Rees Library

    1) The Mina Rees Library, at any hour, but especially in the morning

    2) 365 5th Avenue, New York, NY, 10016

    3) (I know it’s a cliché, but the staircase!)

    4) It’s hard to feel settled as a student in this city, especially when your school is in midtown Manhattan. The Mina Rees library remains one of the few places in which I feel centered amidst the chaos. I love the windows. I love how engrossed everyone is in their work. I even love when someone gives me a side eye when I dare to open my knapsack a little too loudly.

    1) William Kelly Skylight Conference Room

    2) The Graduate Center, CUNY 365 Fifth Ave

    3)

    4) I chose the William Kelly Skylight Conference Room, not because I’m hoping for extra credit in “Mapping the Futures,” but because of the transformative programming I’ve witnessed (and participated in) in this high-ceilinged, brightly-lit space. It’s where I’ve heard speakers like Saidiya Hartman, M. NourbeSe Philip, and Alexandra Vazquez. Faculty and students convened here together for “Black Lives Matter: Countering the Pedagogies of Anti-Black Racism.” It’s also where the “Black Atlantic” and “Beyond the University in Crisis” conferences were held.  And finally, it’s where I’ve gotten to eat the delicious “Mediterranean Spread,” the savory platters of meat, cheese, pita, veggies, and spreads provided by the Graduate Center catering.

    1) Queens College Quad

    2) 65- 30 Kissena Boulevard Queens NY 11367

    3)

     

    4) On a nice warm day at Queens college when I am stressing out for exams and homework, I like to sit on the grass at the Quad and enjoy the refreshing weather. My friends and I would sometimes have a little picnic on the grass in between classes, do homework, or study for an exam. The Quad also faces a breathtaking view of Manhattan.

      Hi Kristina, I probably say you over Skype but your wonderful post makes me want to come visit in person.  What a gorgeous campus!   I don’t understand why there isn’t more CUNY pride.   All of these photos are incredible.  I can’t wait to visit each and every one of these sites.  I’m new here and really just astonished at the wonders that CUNY offers its students and the city.  I hope you and your classmates publish lots more “favorite spots” so we can include them on the CUNY Map of NYC.

    This is Borough of Manhattan Community College’s Fiterman Hall, 245 Greenwich Street, New York, NY 10007, http://www.bmcc.cuny.edu/fitermanhall/

    The is the view of BMCC’s Fiterman Hall from the new World Trade Center Memorial on September 11th 2013th.  The new Fiterman Hall opened in the Fall of 2012.

    This is the old Fiterman Hall just after September 11, 2001. The building had to be torn down and rebuilt after debris from the other towers damaged its infrastructure.

    The Icarus Bronze Sculpture

    199 Chambers Street, New York, NY 10007

    In Greek mythology, Icarus was the son of Son of Daedalus, a master craftsman who was imprisoned by the king of Minos. Daedalus constructed wings and gave a pair to Icarus and warned him not to fly too close to the sun. For me, the Icarus bronze sculpture is a symbol effective teaching. I was never interested in the history of art until I took an art class at the Borough of Manhattan Community College. I cannot remember the professor’s name but I remembered how surprised I was at actually being joyfully engaged in the learning process. The Icarus bronze sculpture was one of the focal point of the course. A course that ignited my interest in different art forms such as paintings, drawings and sculpting.

    Ah, Maria! I love that they showcase this on the campus! I also love how this piece becomes so stimulating once you have engaged with the story. A bronze piece of metal, passed by many, unnoticed, becomes meaningful once contextualized and relevant to someone.

    This is a difficult question for me because there are so many spots on different CUNY campuses that have personal significance–spaces where I have spent countless hours working (like the second floor of the Mina Rees Library) or the strange, intriguing corners of different CUNY campuses (the rainbow hallways and bizarrely-hued bathrooms of York College’s A building, for example.) I have spent 3.5 years teaching at Brooklyn College so I am going to choose one of my favorite places there: a classroom on the 5th floor of Boylan Hall where I taught two semesters of Modern Art. It’s a little classroom that feels like an attic– the smallest classroom that I had ever taught in at the time, and a huge contrast to the large lecture rooms where I had previously been placed. The 5th floor room has moveable desks, enabling my students and I to reconfigure the space from week to week, creating an environment that welcomed dialogue and experimentation. This is a photo taken after a discussion that my Spring 2013 class had on Tristan Tzara’s Dada Manifesto. Although its just a blackboard of notes taken by a student recording the conversation, I think it captures some of the energy of that room.

      Hi Hallie, the energy in the room sounds amazing. Unfortunately, the photo isn’t appearing! Since images need a stable URL to appear in forum posts, try uploading it to the site’s media library first (hover over the + New link in the top black menu bar, then click Media). That will create a URL for the photo, which you can then add to a forum post. This can be a little confusing the first time around, so you’re also welcome to email the photo to me and I’ll post it on your behalf. Thanks for sharing your favorite spots!

    3.

    4. The Queens College Quad is my favorite place in CUNY because even with all the heavy snow and cold weather, the view never fails to amaze me. Passing by this everyday to get to my classes always gives me a sense on peace and relaxation even with all the stress in my mind. It gives me strength to continue working harder, because even in the rough winter we witnessed this year we all kept going.

    1. Catholic Newman Center
    2. 6530 Kissena Blvd. Flushing, NY 11367
    3. Though I’m not a member of the Catholic organization at Queens College, I feel centered here. Not only is it the only room with an accessible microwave and free bagels, coffee and such but I love the royal blue imprinted-glass windows. It oddly doesn’t get too busy here, which is why I can actually concentrate. But whenever I need a quick escape from my chaotic work, I’ll sometimes have the kind Father Paul come over and make jokes and/or have the luxury to either play pool or ping-ping which is really cool. Lastly, since I’ve been introduced to this room, it’s been like a temple for me.

    1) Name the location.
    The Octagonal Room in the Brooklyn College Library (2nd floor to the rear)

    2) Give the exact address.
    2900 Bedford Avenue Brooklyn, NY 11210

    3) Add an image to the location
    The Octagonal Room can be seen in the top near-right corner in the image below. (Finding an actual picture proved difficult)


    4) Tell us why it’s your favorite spot.

    This room is beautifully octagonal, which makes it unique and interesting to sit in. It’s got the obvious factor of being pretty quiet for some studying, with comfy chairs and a big round table for serious work. But, it doubles as a relaxation spot for when you’re not studying because the geometry of the room is calming. Add that to the rays of sunshine coming through the large windows overlooking the campus and you’ve got your own secret sleep haven.

    What is your favorite place in CUNY?
    1) Name the location.

    The Benjamin S. Rosenthal Library

    2) Give the exact address.

    Benjamin S. Rosenthal Library | 65-30 Kissena Boulevard | Queens, NY 11367-1597

    3) Add an image to the location

    4) Tell us why it’s your favorite spot.

    It’s my favorite spot to go when I am on break from classes. It’s a great place to go and study without distractions. I am productive when I go here. There are so many different sections and books to explore. The library completes the campus. The outside of the library makes me want to go in and see what it has to offer.

    3) Add an image to the location

     

    4) Tell us why it’s your favorite spot.
    The Queens College quad water fountain is my favorite spot because when it’s nice out it is an amazing place to just sit and relax. When the skies are clear you can see the city skyline from the fountain. Sitting on the quad of Queens College allows you to enjoy the sound of the water from the fountain. It is just really relaxing to be around this fountain especially after a long day of classes.

    4) Tell us why it’s your favorite spot.

    I like the way the bell tower looks out over everything. It’s a mile marker, in both the utilitarian (literal) sense and in a more open, education-focused one.

    My favorite place in CUNY?
    1) Brooklyn College
    2) 2900 Bedford Avenue, Brooklyn, NY  11210
    3) This is an archival image of the campus quadrangle.  I like the idea that Brooklyn College is very much a part of Brooklyn’s History.  So many students have walked this campus.  The other day there was an older alumni in the library; she’d graduated in 1946!
    4) I spend a lot of time here on campus; studying and working.  It’s a nice little enclave.  My favorite times have been summer weekends when I go to the library and there is virtually no one there.  It’s heaven.  Sometimes in the early evening I just stroll casually home.  It may sound funny to say this but, it’s a cozy place.

    1) Backside of Kingsborough Community College Campus

    2) 2001 Oriental Boulevard, Brooklyn NY 11235

    1) Hunter East Building Terrace

    2) 695 Park Avenue, New York, NY 10065

    4) I enjoy this spot because its a great escape from the mundane life of being an undergraduate college student! Since Hunters campus is mainly indoors, it provides some fresh air and sunlight without having to leave the campus. Finally, the view of the city streets bellow is awe-inspiring as well as the plants are blossoming.

    Favorite place

    Hunter College bike racks, specially the one in front of the West building and next to the food trucks

    Location

    695 Park Ave, New York, NY 10065

    Picture

    Why

    This spot is the safest spot to lock up a bike, never have I felt so safe locking my bike here, I bike a lot so my bike is basically a part of me. Often when I lock my bike there, the guys at the food truck will pay attention and prevent any suspicious activity, not to mention there’s always a campus security car parked near the bike rack. If only all the bike racks in NYC are this safe…

    1) Hunter College Skywalk

    2) 695 Park Ave, New York, NY 1006

    3)

    4)The hunter skywalk is my favorite location in the CUNY campuses because I find it beautiful how people who are from different backgrounds and all want different things all traverse these crossroads to either go get an education and better themselves or to meet with friends and have fun. I like to sit and try to imagine what all other people walking past might be thinking, who they are or what their past was. I also meet friends moving through the halls or while I sit there and the skywalk adds a bit of community to the school.

    1. Hunter College Library staircase

    2. 695 Park Ave, New York, NY 10065

    4. I love the futuristic style of the library when you enter, especially when using these stairs. The color, lights and triangular construction gives the place a spacey characteristic. Simply going up the stairs to a quiet room in the library is exciting and fun. (and really worth taking the stairs.)

    KBCC

    <span class=”_Xbe”>Brooklyn College Address -2900 Bedford Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11210</span>


    <span class=”_Xbe”>CCNY Address -160 Convent Ave, New York, NY 10031</span>

    CCNY

    3) Honestly all three of these are a tie for me because really both are the only things CUNY I’ve seen, but I have reasons.

    For Kingsborough, I went there every Sunday for a 7 hour SAT Prep course. During our break, you can go out and relax by the shore there. IT was amazingly beautiful. I loved the breeze on my face, the view of the ocean, boats going by, and it was just relaxing
    As for Brooklyn College,this campus made me feel as if I was in upstate NY when I preformed there for my HS chorus during some graduations. I was last there about a month ago. Fantastic sight!
    As for CCNY, well this is my college and when I entered it I felt like I entered a castle/empire. The architectural design of many buildings was fantastic! Then the view of the grass/trees made it beautiful. I can’t wait for them all to grow in again 🙂

    What is your favorite place in CUNY?
    1) City College Library, but specifically, the private rooms!
    2) 160 Convent Avenue

    It’s my favorite spot because my home isn’t the most ideal place to study or get much work done. But, the rooms in the library provide me with that space where I don’t have to be in the actual library with people walking around, distracting me. All of the rooms have huge desk space, which is great for laying out notecards! It’s very comfortable on the 4th floor because those rooms have mini-couches, which is nice. I appreciate having the option of solace outside of my home.

    Hunter College, 8th floor West Building

    695 Park Avenue, New York, NY 10065

    I enjoy the view from this balcony on the 8th floor because it’s a quite place to relax in between classes. There is always somewhere to sit which is a big deal when it comes to finding a place that’s comfortable and silent. It’s a place that calms me down and helps me focus when there’s many tasks at hand.

    4) I basically spend most of my time here and it’s where all of my favorite places are. From the library to the fish  bowl to the cafeteria, etc., I’m in this building for most of my day. Surprisingly, I’ve learned to love its highly complicated navigation system and there are a lot of random places to hang out.

    1. Marshak Library (CCNY)

    2. 160 Convent Ave

    4. Marshak Library happens to be my favorite place in CCNY particularly because it is where I find mostly all engineering books I need. It is a quite place where i go to get all my homework done. Though it is not a very nice library, visually, it is good enough for me in terms of resources.

    1. The Quad at The City College of New York

    2. 160 Convent Ave

    4. The CCNY Quad is probably the most relaxed place to be especially  in the Spring. I like to just sit there and look at the people walking by, my friends and I sometimes laugh at the way some students run to class.

    Well in retrospect, the Quad is just the best place to be when you are just taking a quick break from your demanding professors.

    4) Evey other days of the week, I get to see this beautiful scenery through the window on the way to my last class of the day. It makes me to appreciate the city i’m in each time I walk by.

    1) the second floor of the Cohen Library
    2) 160 Convent Avenue
    3) 

    4) I love the second floor of the Cohen Library because I can be as loud as I want! Not really. But I am allowed to chat with class mates, work in large groups, and even take naps on the conveniently located couches. They can be a bit softer, but a beggar can’t be a chooser. Also, it’s a brief walk to the technology center when I can easily print homework, labs, and other readings/assignments. Overall, it’s a great place to hang out and get work done alone or in groups.

    1. The City College of New York’s Library 4th floor windows looking down above the rest of the library.

    2. 160 Convent Avenue New York, NY 10031

    3. This is my favorite spot at City College, because it is quiet and further removed from the rest of the library. I feel as though it is my own little oasis when I need to escape the hustle and bustle of the day.
