Columbia University is the oldest institution of higher learning in New York, the fifths oldest in the USA and is also one of the eight Ivy League schools. The University occupies more than 6 blocks in the Morningside Heights neighborhood in Upper Manhattan.

The above pictured Alama Mater statue by Daniel Chester French is sitting in front of the Low Library – the most prominent building on the campus. It was built in 1895 and has been declared as a National Historic Landmark. These days the Low Library is the administrative center of Columbia, while the below pictured Butler Library is the main library.Columbia University NYCColumbia Morningside Heightsnew york columbia 1NYC Columbianew york columbia universitynew york columbia
