    You're in the heart of NYC, there's always something. Campus is close to Chelsea Market which is fun. TIP: Although it's close, stay away from Time Square at all costs!

    The school is located in the heart of NYC so you're steps away from tons of attractions. If you don't feel like walking getting around is easy since the 1 subway line is located right by campus. There are also tons of parks to go to on a nice day.

    Student life provides lots of free movie nights and free/cheap activities to do. You will also be living in NYC so there is always something fun to do.

    FIT is in a great location. There are several places to shop on 34th street, which is not far from the school at all. Also, the Empire State building is always great to see close by there. There are several great places to eat across the street and a couple of avenues down. Chelsea is a very residential area in Manhattan, so there are many activities such as yoga and kickboxing classes that are not located far from the school. If you wanted to walk or take the train about 2 stops, you could go to 42nd street, view all of the lights at night and see all of the fun, outrageous people. For a free event, central park is also a couple train stops away. There are so many things to do there. You could get lost with a friend, study, or just hang out. The subway system will become your best friend, you can get anywhere at anytime in this city.

    Living in the city that never sleeps fun is all around you. Get involved in a lot of clubs, volunteer opportunities and take advantage of the special guests that come to the school. Also always go out and meet new people at internships, fashion shows and trade shows, you never know who you are going to meet.

    EVERYTHING & ANYTHING! FIT is right in the heart of New York City so the options are endless. I'm always looking up new fun things to do and many times those things are free! You just have to look! FIT is pretty close to Chelsea Piers as well which has a skatepark,mixer ink, driving range and a million other amenities. Most of the time my friends and I just explore different boroughs or villages and are always finding shows to go to in Brooklyn, sample sales downtown, or active things like rooftop yoga. In the city your opportunities for fun are endless it's like no other place in the world.
