The Organization and Administration of Teachers College: Resources and Equipment

by James E. Russell - 1900

The College is situated on Morningside Heights between Amsterdam Avenue and Broadway. This location is singularly fortunate. The main buildings of Columbia University, Barnard College, the Grant Monument, St. Luke's Hospital, the Cathedral of St. John the Divine, and the Academy of Design are in the immediate vicinity. Morningside and Riverside Parks are within two blocks and Central Park is easily accessible. The site commands a fine view eastward of the city and the Harlem River, westward and northward of the Hudson and the Palisades. The elevated railroad and the two lines of electric street cars which pass the grounds make the College accessible from all parts of the city at the rate of a single fare. The College buildings three in number are so arranged about a rectangular court and connected by corridors that they practically form one building. The Main Building has a frontage on 120th Street of 230 feet; the Milbank Building forms the west wing, and the Macy Building the north wing, of the main edifice. These buildings are five stories in height and of fireproof structure; they contain 178 rooms used for educational purposes, including offices and supply-rooms, Memorial Chapel, Gymnasium, the Bryson Library, and the Students' Room. The buildings are equipped throughout with gas, electric light, local speaking-tubes and telephones, and excellent elevator service. In the lighting, heating, and ventilation of the buildings the needs of students have been studied quite as much as in the equipping of the various professional departments. It is believed that nothing which can be of use to teachers in training has been omitted or cannot be provided as occasion demands.
