About Our Neighborhood
As with each summer, Kaufman Hall is undergoing a few upgrades. From painting to maintenance to repair, the many public spaces of the residence will be receiving some TLC. You will also notice scaffolding outside the hall, allowing building engineers to conduct city required inspections of the exterior, as seen across the city on many other buildings.
As Kaufman Hall is continuing to develop, the neighborhood is as well. From new public spaces, like the famous “High Line” park that is within walking distance, to the redevelopment of the Hudson Yards area, these continuing construction projects are serving to invigorate the neighborhood all with an eye toward the future. While these projects may cause some inconvenience, we are confident that you will find our facilities and location convenient, clean, safe, and affordable during your summer stay.
We are aware there are many residence choices in the city and want to thank you for selecting FIT as your summer home. We know that you will enjoy all that Chelsea and New York City has to offer and are confident that our facility will contribute to the many exciting memories you will soon have.
