Literary New York

If you want your studies of English & World Literatures to be immersed in literary history and enriched by once-in-a-lifetime literary and cultural events, then the question is:

Why go anywhere other than New York City?

New York City bursts with literary history and culture — from Shakespeare in the Park and the Joseph Papp Public Theater to the New York Public Library and the Strand Bookstore.

It’s a city where the streets offer a map of literary history filled with places from which literary classics sprang. The literary past of New York City is only surpassed by its present—the calendar overflows with literary and cultural events every night of the week.
