Life in New York City

Located in one of the most dynamic and diverse cities in the world, the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai shares a four-block campus with The Mount Sinai Hospital bordering the East Harlem and Yorkville neighborhoods in Manhattan. Adjacent to Central Park, the campus extends from 98th Street to 102nd Street and eastward from Fifth Avenue to Park Avenue. East Harlem, a predominantly low-income community, and Yorkville, one of the nation's most affluent communities, provide a broad mix of cultural, socioeconomic and ethnic diversity, which creates unique educational and health service opportunities at Mount Sinai.

Central Park offers picnic, softball and running opportunities (you are welcome to join Mount Sinai's running groups and the famous New York Road Runners Club0, and the nearby 92nd Street Y hosts many concerts, lectures and poetry readings. Mount Sinai is also just blocks away from the serene Conservatory Garden of Central Park and is situated on Museum Mile, a stretch of Fifth Avenue that encompasses some of New York's most important cultural institutions, beginning with the Museo Del Barrio and including prominent institutions like the Guggenheim Museum, and The Jewish Museum. The mile ends at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The Recreation Office can assist you with obtaining tickets to the museums as well as numerous sporting and cultural events.
