Summer scholars are responsible for arranging their own housing. However, City Lore will reserve a set of single and double dormitory rooms at the St. George Towers at 55 Clark Street in historic Brooklyn Heights. The location is just a short subway ride from Manhattan–about 20 minutes to City Lore and the NYU Kevorkian Center using the A/C at High Street. The Saint George Hotel offers a quiet, well-maintained residence with 24-hour concierge and security.
$425/person/week (+$25 mandatory nonprofit membership fee; St. George operates as nonprofit)
