      Behind-the-Scenes @ City College of New York, "Manhattan's Hogwarts"

      What's a real-life Hogwarts doing in the Manhattan neighborhood of Hamilton Heights? Now's your chance to explore the secret rooms, tunnels, and rooftops of one of New York's most impressive university campuses, in a way few have before. Join New York Adventure Club for an exclusive, behind-the-scenes exploration of the historic City College of New York (CCNY), the first public higher-education institution in New York City that has been dedicated to access to excellence since 1847. Led by the architectural historian of the college, Dalton Whiteside, our one-of-a-kind experience throughout this historic campus will include: An overview of the historic 1906 campus and its iconic New York Neo-Gothic buildings, which boast over 1,000 unique grotesques and gargoyles (more than anywhere else in the country!) A walkthrough of many historic rooms, including the famed Great Hall A climb to several rooftops throughout the complex, including the bell tower, clock tower, and Architecture School with sweeping views of the NYC skyline A descent to the secret tunnels underneath the campus that have been closed to students for several decades   Click here to see pictures from one of our last trips to CCNY!   *Please wear comfortable shoes as we’ll be doing a lot of walking and stair climbing! **Snacks and a water bottle are encouraged!
