ICC’s flagship is in Soho, NYC, a friendly neighborhood known for charming streets, eclectic eateries, trendy shopping and celebrity residents such as musician Lenny Kravitz and actor Daniel Radcliffe. Some highlights:
You’ve seen Soho’s cobblestone streets in movies and fashion shoots–they have even more character in person, and reflect the true NYC experience.
The school is steps away from some of the hottest restaurants and bakeries, many owned by our grads!
- Dominique Ansel Bakery–the inventor of the Cronut, Chef Ansel is an ICC Advisory Board Member
- Balthhazar—Sommelier Rebecca Banks is an ICC grad
- Ed’s Lobster Bar, owned by Ed McFarland, an ICC grad
- Gato, Bobby Flay’s latest (he’s an ICC Culinary grad)
- Momofuku Milk Bar, created by Christina Tosi, an ICC Pastry grad
Soho is famous for its shopping, and we are located on Broadway, the main avenue which includes Top Shop, Bloomingdale’s, Uniqlo, H&M and many more.
People-watching and coffee are favorite downtown activities; La Colombe, Café Integral, Ground Support and Harney & Son’s are nearby; directly across Crosby Street is Saturdays, voted tops by Esquire magazine.
The area’s chic hotels are right around the block, including The Mondrian and The Crosby Hotel.
The historic neighborhoods and cooking of Chinatown, Little Italy and the Lower East Side are all within easy walking distance of ICC’s Soho campus.
ICC is two blocks from the major Canal Street subway station, and a few more to other subways and Citi-bikes. Student housing is shared with School of Visual Arts on the Lower East Side, a 15-minute walk or hop on the subway.
The Angelika Theater, Film Forum and The New Museum are culture standouts in the neighborhood.
The New School, a prestigious NYC university which accepts up to 60 credits from ICC toward a college degree, is a short subway ride away.
