Cornell's connections to NYC
Though perched 200 miles away far above Cayuga’s waters, Cornell has played an outsized role in New York City’s landscape of iconic people, places and things over the years. More than 50,000 Cornellians live in the greater New York City area. Cornell alumni in NYC are leaders in the areas of business and finance, art and culture, science, healthcare, law, public service, media, tech, fashion, hospitality, cuisine, and more.
