Views from the resident's perspective
Living in New York
From Washington Heights to the Upper West Side, Chelsea, and the West Village, New York City has it all—anything and everything you might 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. Harlem's world-famous Apollo Theater is just three stops away, or stay on the A train a little longer to the Village for jazz at the Blue Note. And of course, there’s Broadway. Late night, the clubs in the Meatpacking district draw those who want to cut loose. 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. Citi Field, the Meadowlands, and Belmont Park make for an easy excursion. New York City—that concrete jungle where dreams are made, no place in the world that could compare!* Spending five years in the melting pot is an incredible addition to learning from some of the best orthopedic surgeons in the world.
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 it is, there are always great restaurants, bars, museums, concerts, exhibits, and more at your fingertips!
