Wagner sits on a hilltop overlooking Manhattan, the Atlantic Ocean and New York Harbor in the borough of Staten Island. Wagner's 105-acre campus is on Grymes Hill, a classic turn-of-the-century oasis that was once the exclusive domain of families like the Vanderbilts and Cunards. Located just twenty-five minutes from Manhattan, with its countless cultural, intellectual and professional opportunities, the College's suburban setting provides the serenity of a quiet campus as a complement to the excitement of New York City. A ride on the Staten Island Ferry (and it's free!) transports our students and visitors to the wealth of opportunity that Manhattan offers. And if you want to remain in the local area, the many restaurants, movies, shops and cultural activities on Staten Island will keep you busy.
