When you first come to the Brooklyn College campus in the Midwood section, its New York City location seems unreal. The 26-acre (110,000 m2) campus is a place of great beauty. No wonder it is often called, “the poor man’s Harvard.” While this refers to the City University low tuition and the college’s reputation for academic excellence, it is also for its classic Georgian-style buildings and verdant paths, truly akin to Harvard, Brown and other New England campuses. Lily pond, gardens, elm trees—a visit well worth including during a Brooklyn day. The future will bring to the campus a new center for the performing arts.
