Whether you’re graduating and leaving the city for good, or just headed to suburbia for the summer, do something urban and make your state school friends jealous. McKenzie and Jorge, our in-house Instagram experts, braved the 7 train and headed to LIC, the trendiest hood in Queens. Here, they tested the best ways to exploit 5 Pointz for maximum #instalikes.
Local Staffers Ben Murray and McKenzie Beehler head back to their freshman year dorm, University Hall, and meet the cute freshmen currently living there. Less than a month left to finish our whole bucket list!
The seniors of NYU Local have put together the ultimate bucket list for NYU’s class of 2013. Most of us have spent the last four years under our covers blogging in front of the soft glow of our warm laptops — it’s time we got out out the house.
This past Friday, we sent three Gentiles and their Jewish spiritual advisor to Shabbat dinner. Although the Senior Bucket List stated “Enjoy Shabbat at Weinstein (bonus points if you’re Gentile),” the rules were bent a bit for time, place and manner. The Global Center for Academic and Spiritual Life (GCASL) held the Bridges Jum’ah/Shabbat day services and dinner, inviting both the Jewish and Muslim communities to come together for this special occasion. So we had no idea what we were walking into.
Upon arrival, our spiritual advisor forced us to schmooze. And, within the first fifteen minutes or so, President John Sexton showed up to the celebration, dog cradled in hand. As Gentiles, we were penetrating a network previously unknown to us. Andrew was on the lookout for his future Jewish galpal/wife (he came up empty-handed… again), McKenzie beelined towards Sexton to get her first hug (“So how do we do this?,” she asked him) and John couldn’t keep his paws off the frisky pup known as LEGS.
We thought we were showing up for free food before Friday night’s festivities but, instead, we got something really special in return.
