New York City can be a little intimidating if you’re not used to the big city. For getting around in NYC, we strongly recommend a good urban navigation app, which will give you various options and real-time updates about public transportation and traffic. We have found that those new to New York City find Moovit easy to use. Others prefer Google Maps, and still others Citymapper. It pays to have your navigation app close to hand when venturing out!

The UN Church Center website is here. Fordham University’s website is here. Fordham’s Rose Hill (Bronx) campus map is here.
