Compared to any university in NYC, FIT has one of the best locations, centrally located in Manhattan, steps from Penn Station and Port Authority, and a quick walk to the Hudson River. Thankfully, with our amazing location, there is always somewhere to eat! Here are some of the resources and restaurants available to you, all within a 3 block radius!
- The Dining Hall
The Dining Hall located in the Dubinsky Student Center has great options from salads and sushi, to pizza, omelettes, fruit, and sandwiches.
Also located in the Dubinsky Student Center is our very own Starbucks. This Starbucks accepts FIT declining balance, cash, and credit cards so you’ll always be prepared to get your morning fix of caffeine!
- FIT Express
FIT Express is located in the Marvin Feldman Center lobby and is your quick stop to picking up some fruit, a light snack, or a space to eat before your next class.
- Brooklyn Bagel
Something that I ALWAYS tell anyone that is visiting or coming to NYC for the first time is that they have to go to Brooklyn Bagel located on 8th Ave & 25th St. With an array of cream cheese spreads and hand rolled bagels, I can promise you that you’ll be back for more!
Yes, I know, we are in New York City, and it seems absurd for me to recommend Chipotle, but honestly, it’s incredibly conveniently located (7th Ave & 26th St), quick, and satisfying. What more could you ask for?
- Fresh & Co
Located right across the street from FIT on 7th Ave, Fresh & Co offers create your own salad and pasta, or choose from several soup and sandwich options.
- Whole Foods
Located at 7th Ave and 25th St, Whole Foods is a great resource for lunch! They have incredible options from their hot bar, sushi section, or create your own salad. Special bonus is that you can always get some light grocery shopping done while you’re there. (Be mindful of the prices of groceries. Trader Joe’s/Fairway is a more affordable option)
