Top 10 Back-to-College Apartment Buildings in Manhattan

Even in a post-Animal House-era, dormitories never get much respect.  In New York City, however, they still conjure images of youths staggering, not silently, in the wee hours towards their miniscule apartments and numerous roommates off ever-expanding campuses. It’s not that the student haunts are unattractive, or in off-the-beaten paths.  Indeed, many have prime locations, close to the proverbial “action.” It’s just that the best of the Top 10 Back-To-College New York City apartment buildings might be too elegant/fragile for their temporary residents.
