WHY:  MCNY’s new campus in downtown Manhattan’s Financial District represents a major community investment which will strengthen the long-term institutional and financial stability of MCNY and provide expanded capacity to accommodate additional students.

For the new campus, MCNY purchased a commercial condominium at 40 Rector Street, with 110,000 sq. ft. of space and a prominent, dedicated entrance at 60 West Street, three blocks south of the World Trade Center. The new space offers significant advantages including greatly improved transportation options for students and a better location to partner with local businesses and community groups.
