Located in the dynamic East Village on the corner of Second Street and Bowery, 300 upperclassman residents fill the 12 floors of this dorm. There are single, double and triple studios available, and all setups come with a private bathroom. However, unlike most upperclassman dorms with fully-equipped kitchens, Second Street only has a kitchenette. These rooms are generally a hit or miss due to their odd shapes, but the studio-only arrangement provides residents more privacy.

Second Street also houses a large communal lounge that includes a television and pool table, as well as music and dance practice rooms, an art studio, a study room, a computer lab and bike storage — perfect for those who don’t want to make the considerable but still manageable trek to campus. No NYU Shuttle stops near Second Street, since this is one of the closer upperclassmen dorms.

The surrounding areas of Little Italy, the Lower East Side, Soho and Chinatown make Second Street one of the most vibrantly placed dorms, and this prime location ensures you never go hungry — a good thing, since the closest dining halls are at Kimmel or Third North, both of which are about a 10-minute walk away. For the adventurous and those who don’t mind whimsical spaces, something that most residents find endearing after a while, Second Street could be for you.
