WHEN: Thursday, September 8, 9:00am
WHERE: Metropolitan College of New York, 463 East 149th Street, Bronx, New York
WHY: MCNY’s new Bronx Center is the
anchor of Triangle Plaza Hub, a new, mixed commercial project that is at the heart of redevelopment in the South Bronx, an economically distressed area that is rebounding after decades of decline. This new 26,000 sq. ft. state-of-the-art facility has the capacity to serve over 500 students and solidifies MCNY’s footprint in the Bronx.
The MCNY Bronx Center will feature seventeen classrooms, 3 computer labs and a multipurpose conference space that will allow the college to host large events to make the campus and integral part of the local community. The new facility will include public assembly spaces that will provide unprecedented opportunities for MCNY students to interact with the community.
Along with MCNY President Vinton Thompson and local elected officials, current members of the faculty and student body will be on site. Tours of the new campus will also be available.
