NOAA CESSRST is housed within the City College campus of the City University of New York (CUNY). It is commonly called City College of New York (CCNY) or, colloquially, City. Not only is CCNY the senior college within the CUNY system, it holds the distinction as the oldest of New York City's twenty-three institutions of higher learning. CCNY was the first free public institution of higher education in the United States. For many years it has been considered the flagship campus of the CUNY public university system. CCNY's thirty-five acre Manhattan campus flanks Convent Avenue between 130th and 141st Streets. Perched atop hill with sweeping views of Harlem, the neo-Gothic campus was mostly designed by George Browne Post. Many of its buildings are landmarks.
