Lehman College’s beautiful, tree-lined; 37-acre campus is located in a residential section of the northwest Bronx, along the historic Jerome Park Reservoir. The Lehman Campus is accessible from any of the five boroughs or from Westchester County. The New York Times has called Lehman “the most attractive of the CUNY colleges with some of its finest facilities”. The old Tudor-Gothic architecture of the original College buildings provides an environment of considerable architectural interest. Built in the 1930s as part of the federal Works Projects Administration, the grey-stone buildings feature imposing turrets, graceful finials, and other decorative features. The opening of the Lehman Center for the Performing Arts and the Lehman College Art Gallery has made the college a cultural center for the region. The APEX opened in 1994 with sophisticated athletic facilities including, an Olympic-sized swimming pool, two full sized gymnasiums, four racquetball courts, a fitness center and free-weight room, an indoor track and dance studios.
