City College

Exploring the Uptown Campus

With Dalton Whiteside

The City College of New York (CCNY) dates back to 1847 as America’s first provider of free public higher education. The campus moved to Hamilton Heights in 1907, and has hosted countless dignitaries including Mark Twain and President Franklin Roosevelt; and graduated great minds including Jonas Salk and Gen. Colin Powell, among many others. On this tour with City College graduate and campus guide, Dalton Whiteside, we will visit CCNY’s vibrant Neo-Gothic campus, through the Modernism of the central campus, and to the newly renovated South Campus, which originated as a former Convent. We will conclude the tour on the roof of the Bernard & Anne Spitzer School of Architecture, with a stunning view of the city skyline. It’s sure to be an educational adventure!
