Our English school in New York has two different venues. The prestigious headquarters in the Empire State Building and the headquarters in Soho. Both are located on the island of Manhattan.
The English school in New York is located in one of the most famous buildings in the world, the Empire State Building, on the 63rd floor of the building, offering breathtaking panoramic views of the city and nearby.
Built in the early '30s, the building is part of the history of New York and the United States, and still attracts thousands of visitors today from around the world.
Moreover, it is just a few steps from Macy's in Herald Square and the most famous court in the world, Madison Square Garden.
Very close to the school, there is access to different major subway lines, both to reach your accommodation and all parts of the city you want to visit. The school has first class facilities with the most advanced technologies.
In the same building, students will enjoy amenities such as shops, bars and banks. Anything else you need, you can leave campus and explore Manhattan, shops of 5th Avenue and Times Square theatres.
Common Room: The room has internet access, sofas, tables for studying or for lunch, microwave, mailboxes for students and some of the best views of New York.

The headquarters in Soho is in the heart of Manhattan, in one of the most glamorous and interesting neighbourhoods in the city. The students will be able to make the most out of the famous shops, galleries, restaurants and clubs. Ït is very close to some of the most interesting areas in the city: Sr Mark´s place, Greenwich Village, NY University, Little Italy or Chinatown.

New York is the city that never sleeps. When you study here, you will live among icons of the United States, the Empire State Building, Statue of Liberty, Brooklyn Bridge and Times Square. You can also attend a premiere on Broadway, take a bike ride through Central Park, visit museums, art galleries and world-class restaurants.
Diversity is what characterises its population coming from all over the world. Markets and shops of all kinds turn the city into a shopping paradise. In addition to the spectacle of the city itself, our students will discover less than an hour away, some of the beautiful beaches and forests around the area, including Long Island, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania, among others.
The subway system in New York is the fastest way to access almost anywhere. It has almost 500 stations which you can move in and out of Manhattan on the same ticket. It operates 24 hours a day. It is relatively easy, but sometimes it can be complicated. Our best advice is that when you are not sure, always enquire.
The bus stops are clearly marked with map and are frequent. The frequency is pretty good but obviously, at night, there are fewer buses.
To access them you need a MetroCard or pay the driver $ 2,
They are operated by the transport company of the city, MTA (Metropolitan Transpor Authority), the same network that controls the subway.
There are plenty of taxis in New York. But it's hard to find one when it is raining or during peak hours (between 5 and 7 pm). Just getting into the taxi costs $ 2.50, and it is about a dollar for every kilometer. Overall, the typical journey is about $ 9. Remember to tip the driver, if not he will be furious. Typically you round it up to the next dollar.
Times Square, the Statue of Liberty, Wall Street, Central Park, Rockefeller Center, Madison Avenue, SoHo ... you decide!
