Weill Medical College of Cornell University is located in an attractive residential area on the upper east side of New York City, adjacent to the East River. The center is ideally situated to take advantage of New York's cultural treasures. The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Museum of Modern Art, the Frick, Whitney, and Guggenheim Museums along with several renowned private art galleries all are within walking distance. Many other cultural attractions including Lincoln Center, Carnegie Hall, The American Museum of Natural History, the great playhouses of Broadway, and world famous jazz clubs are just a short bus ride away. Madison Square Garden, Yankee Stadium, Giants Stadium, and Shea Stadium are easily accessible. Residents are able to enjoy the haven that Central Park provides from the City's pavements since it is located just blocks from the Medical Center. Numerous restaurants and shops of every kind are also just blocks away. Perhaps most appealing is the great diversity represented in New York's many ethnic neighborhoods, each offering their own unique experiences.
