Short-term Rentals

The University Parking Garage is the closest garage, located at 532 West 122nd St, less than a block from the School. Note however, that because of on-going construction at 122nd Street, you will need to walk north on the east side of Broadway from 122nd Street to 121st Street to cross over to the MSM side of Broadway.

The Claremont Avenue Garage is located beneath the Riverside Church's South Wing. The entrance is on 120th Street between Riverside Drive and Claremont Avenue.

Parking can be found along the streets around the school (as well as Riverside Drive); however, visitors are cautioned to follow parking restrictions carefully and not to leave valuables in their cars.

Secured parking can be found at local parking garages. Below is a short list of garages in the area with day rates ranging from $15-37.

  • University Garage: 523 W 122nd Street (212-961-1075)
  • Claremont Parking & Riverside Church: 480 120th Street (212-870-6736)
