Application fee: The HSNY Application Fee is 35 euros. Dinner is not included at HSNY because… Uptown and downtown, there are wonderful restaurants all over New York (from very cheap to very expensive). Of course, students can always decide to stay home at the Y and cook their own dinners in our Y kitchen, either individually or in groups. But at least some of the time, all Humanities-Springers go out and explore NYC’s myriad restaurants. We help you to discover your own favorites, whether it is Pig Heaven (a famous Chinese restaurant near the Y) or Jackson Hole (NY’s classic hamburger joint) or the Kiev with its huge portions of wonderful Ukrainian food, restaurant in the East Village many New Yorkers especially love (about 12 minutes from the Y by subway; the subway makes everything close). For relaxed, low-key dinners just a few minutes walk from the Y, HSNY especially recommends the Barking Dog Café (good American cuisine, especially Southern) and its Blue Plate summer specials (about 15 euros).
