The center of NYU is its Washington Square campus in the heart of Greenwich Village. One of the city's most creative and energetic communities, the Village is a historic neighborhood that has attracted generations of writers, musicians, artists, and intellectuals. Why not do your exchange at NYU and take a bite of the Big Apple? (www.nyu.edu)
