NYU News.com reports:
NYU is in ongoing discussions with a hotel in the Village to provide rooms for upperclassmen and therefore could not disclose its location.
Administrators have said displaced students will pay comparable rates for housing if placed in Greenwich Hotel or the local area hotel. The going rate for a standard bed in a double room is $13,438 for the academic year.
The starting rate for a room at The Greenwich? $475 a night.
We're not sure if the students would be getting a better deal or not, but either way, unless there's another Greenwich Hotel we don't know about, it seems like NYU students really are the luckiest college kids in New York.
Can we go back to school immediately and become one of the poor students who has to shack up at the Greenwich, with the private courtyard as our backyard and Locanda Verde as our cafeteria? Pretty please?
