Though some Columbia students avoid going to Claremont at all costs, one Bwogger and 47 Claremont resident has to cross the street every day to get home…and there are no crosswalks. Claremont Avenue runs only 11 blocks (from 116th Street to Tiemann Place), and it completely lacks crosswalks. Though Google Maps shows crosswalks at 120th […]
Kevin Chiu ’17 may be a Civil Engineering student at SEAS, but with 510 YouTube subscribers, viral video fame to his name, and hundreds of freelance jobs under his belt, he is also, very decidedly, a cinematographer extraordinaire.
