NYC Athens Campus: a landmark historic building
NYC Athens Campus: an educational and cultural hub
The imposing building that houses New York College for the last 30 years, on 38 Amalias Avenue in Syntagma, has a long past that is directly linked to the history of the modern Greek state. Built in 1876, it was transformed into "Destitute Women's Workshop" under the grant of Andreas Syngros, and renamed to "Young Women's Training Association". After the war, it temporarily housed the National Historical Museum before its permanent installation in the Old House mansion, and the 44th Plaka Gymnasium. In 1982, actress Alicia Nor maintained the "Pyli" Theater inside the building for four years. Over the years, the Building itself has changed, adapted, modernized. Today, our students have the opportunity to attend classes in this historic building, a timeless symbol of history.
