If you’re wearing an NYUCard around your neck, buying textbooks at the NYU Bookstore, and convinced that Tisch Hall is on Broadway — it’s not, check Stern — you’re likely new to Washington Square.
Welcome to the family! We bet you could use a few tips to optimize survival during your transition to full-time New Yorker status.
1. Do a walking tour of the area. The arch is north, the big red library is south, and the best cookies you’ll ever find in a dining hall are west (inside Hayden, of course).
2. Keep a budget but still enjoy your time in the city. Ticket Central has great discounts on tickets to movies, Broadway shows, and more. Don’t pay $18 for This is Us.
