No, you will need to arrange your own transportation to/from NYC and to/from the airport or train/bus station and your housing: transportation costs should be calculated based on your $2,100 stipend and weighed against the possibility that housing for two weeks could run quite high.
As mentioned in #3, above, an unlimited MetroCard will be provided for you to use during your stay. This non-refundable card will allow you to ride NYC’s 24-hour subway and bus system. Please keep in mind that the underground subway system requires taking many staircases (escalators are frequently out of order); it is often not easy to navigate for those with injuries or physical disabilities.
A note on getting around in NYC: The American Podiatric Medical Association and Prevention magazine voted New York City the BEST WALKING CITY, 2006, and we hope you will all take the opportunity to enjoy the city streets, parks, and open squares. Hunter is located two cross-town blocks from Central Park, an ideal area to relax and observe New York life when time/weather permits. As a group, we will conduct walking tours of select NYC neighborhoods, and we strongly encourage participants to bring very comfortable clothes and walking shoes, a refillable water bottle, sunblock, and umbrellas/rain jackets. While the streets can be hot, the subways and other indoor spaces are occasionally freezing (the trains are air-conditioned) so please bring a light layer that may come to use indoors.
