Students walking in Brooklyn

NYU Tandon is perfectly situated in an incredible hub of innovation. Our campus sits within the Brooklyn Tech Triangle, which includes the neighborhoods of DUMBO, Downtown Brooklyn, and the Brooklyn Navy Yard—a giant hotbed of creativity and talent.

The area has attracted a multitude of pioneering businesses and start-up ventures in the tech industry, and our students are connecting with these cutting-edge entrepreneurs on a daily basis. More than 1,350 tech companies currently exist in the Brooklyn Tech Triangle, such as Makerbot, mindbodygreen, Etsy, Amplify, BioLite, and many more, employing over 17,000 people.

Plus, there are all kinds of exciting things to do around Downtown Brooklyn. Our neighborhood is a vibrant area with tons of great options for shopping, dining, and entertainment. Stroll along the waterfront for spectacular views of the Manhattan skyline, check out vintage items at the Brooklyn Flea, stop into an art gallery, and walk across the famous Brooklyn Bridge.

Just across the East River is Manhattan, the Big Apple. A few minutes away by subway, you can shop (or window shop!) at some of the world’s most notorious stores, visit a world-class museum, sing along at a headline concert, indulge at spectacular restaurants, walk around some of the many famous neighborhoods, or relax in one of the city’s spectacular parks.
