Resident Life

Views from the resident's perspective

Living in New York

From Washington Heights to the Upper West Side, Chelsea, and the West Village, the City has it all - anything and everything you would want to see, hear, or taste. The culturally-inclined may venture to Carnegie Hall or Lincoln Center to see the New York Philharmonic, New York City Ballet, or Metropolitan Opera. Or travel to the Village to hear world-renowned jazz at the Blue Note. And of course, there’s Broadway. Late night, the clubs in the Meatpacking district draw those who want to get their dance on. Those seeking quiet reflection with the works of masters can visit some of the world’s great museums, including the Met, MOMA, Guggenheim, Frick, or Whitney. A favorite for residents with families is always the American Museum of Natural History. For sports fans, Yankee Stadium can be seen from the hospital and Madison Square Garden is a short subway ride away. City Field, the Meadowlands, and Belmont Track make for an easy excursion from the city. New York City is unique and spectacular and having the chance to be part of it for five years is priceless.

Being a resident in New York City is awesome because there’s always something fun to do or a new neighborhood to explore in your time off! When you’re on a resident schedule, no matter what time is it, there are always great restaurants, bars, museums, concerts, exhibits, and more at your fingertips!
