Housing and Transportation
Most of our residents choose to live on the west side of Manhattan, which is easily accessible to subway lines that stop directly at our hospital on 168th Street and Broadway (A, C, and 1 train). However, many residents live in other areas of Manhattan, the Bronx, and northern New Jersey.
The Off-Campus Housing Office of Columbia University has apartment listings and advice about renting or subletting in New York City.
All full-time housestaff are eligible for hospital housing. NewYork-Presbyterian owns approximately 950 residential apartments located near the medical center as well as apartments located on the upper east side adjacent to the Cornell campus. There is regular weekday shuttle service provided from the Cornell campus to the NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital for residents residing in the Cornell campus housing.
The hospital is located next to the A, C, and 1 subway lines, along with many uptown and downtown buses. For car travel, the George Washington Bridge (less than a mile from the hospital) offers quick access to New Jersey and upstate New York.
