Where We Live

Many of us call Harlem home, but in a city with so many neighborhoods and the best public transportation system in the world, the choice is all yours. 

Living in Harlem

Many TCOP students come from out of state and choose to live near campus not just for the convenience, but for the culture, the diversity, and the history. Affordable rents don’t hurt either.

Located in upper Manhattan, Harlem offers a wide range of housing options, including historic brownstones, newly renovated condos, and shared apartments.

Manhattan and Brooklyn

It may take some patience, but you can find reasonable rents in Manhattan. Students often look in neighborhoods like Murray Hill, the Lower East Side, Washington Heights and Midtown West.

Though certainly a longer commute, Brooklyn is an excellent option if you’d like a more residential atmosphere. Between the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway, the subway, buses, and ferries, there are plenty of routes to get you from Brooklyn to Harlem.

New Jersey

NJ Transit is safe, fast, and affordable, and it will easily get you from New Jersey to midtown, or over the George Washington Bridge where you can catch the express subway to Harlem.
