“I love the bright lights and hustle and bustle,” Oxenhandler said. After visiting New York City twice in the last year, “it’s so true, you can hear the heartbeat of the city,” he said.

Only blocks from notable places like Greenwich Village and Union Square is Eugene Lang College: The New School for Liberal Arts in New York City.
