Very safe. All Columbia affiliated students (undergrad and grad). Tons of great restaurants and college bars. Close to a bunch of parks for jogging. [View Full Report]

Morningside heights seems like a great neighborhood, and there were tons of restaurants and food carts, running the gambit in price. There is a metro stop right outside the gates. [View Full Report]

Morningside Heights is awesome, but directly outside that is Harlem, which I wasn't incredibly in love with. [View Full Report]

Nice. A lot of cute shops, its NYC. The area closest to the college has a lot of college-oriented stores, like groceries. [View Full Report]

Right outside of Barnard is Columbia, which could be both a good and a bad thing. The good is that there are always new people to meet. The bad - some Columbia students could make you feel inferior. [View Full Report]

I LOVE Morningside. Such a different feel from the rest of the city, a real college "town" with Columbia, MSM, the Theological Seminaries, etc. A lot of young, hip people. Cute restaurants. [View Full Report]
