- Nearby dorms: McBain and Watt are across Broadway. Hogan and Broadway are only a block away.
- Stores and restaurants: On top of Nussbaum & Wu and Mill Korean. Across the street from Deluxe, Milano, Il Cibreo, and International. The rest of Broadway lies at your fingertips (shoetips?). You will thank the heavens for the ease of access to a hungover Nussbaum bagel. You will eat too much Milano.
Cost: $7,492, mid-range price, same as River, LLC, and Harmony
- Bathrooms: The number and exclusivity of bathrooms varies by floor. A1 and D2 doubles and the A7 and D2 singles have private bathrooms. Certain C1 doubles have private bathrooms. On most floors, bathrooms are shared with a 3 or 4:1 student to bathroom ratio.
- AC/Heating: Heating, no AC.
- Kitchen/Lounge: Some halls have their own kitchens, others share them with the adjacent hall. Kitchens vary in size depending on the floor and hall, but all have refrigerators, ample shelf space, a stove, and a sink.
- Laundry: The laundry facilities are located in the basement. Nussbaum charges the highest laundry prices on campus: $1.70 per washer or dryer, and you have to get a weird card from a machine that only takes cash in the lobby.
- Computers/Printers: One printer in the lobby.
- Gym: There’s no gym in Nussbaum, though there is what appears to be a work out bench in the basement. Use at your own risk.
- Intra-transportation: Two elevators and a stairwell. The elevators are relatively slow.
- Wi-Fi: Wi-Fi and ethernet.
- Hardwood/Carpet: All floors are hardwood.
- Facilities: Because Nuss houses non-Columbia residents, it has its own maintenance crew that gets stuff done fast. They clean the bathrooms and kitchens weekly.
- Doubles: 68 rooms, from a brutal 154 sq. feet to 210 sq. feet. (260 for walk-throughs)
- Singles: 49 rather roomy rooms, from 124 sq. feet to 160 sq. feet.
- Windows vary. The rooms in the bottom corner of the “U” have only one window and it faces your neighbor’s blinds. (more…)
