Columbia University, New York Photos

Columbia University occupies an essentially symmetrical neoclassical campus planned by the renowned architect Charles Follen McKim of McKim, Mead & White in 1896. Situated slightly to the northwest of the top of New York's Central Park, the grounds are surprisingly spacious considering the Manhattan real it occupies.
