Manhattan Miracle?


Several years ago, we were told that Nyack’s re-entry into the financial district of Manhattan was a miracle.  It ends up that this “miracle” was paid for with crippling debt. 


Nyack’s move to some of the most expensive locations in the country necessitated separating Nyack’s teaching facilities from the dorms.  Nyack’s dorms are now located across the Hudson River in New Jersey.  These dorm rooms cost students about 50% more than the dorms at the former facility.  As a result, Nyack students will likely take on an even greater debt burden.   


Just as troubling as the higher cost of Nyack’s dorms is the fact that they share the building with a hip LGBTQ+ bar - the Headroom.   Sure, we need to minister to the community – yet is it wise to house naïve hormone-infused college freshmen next to a drag-show bar?


In the near future, you may be asked to support Nyack financially.  Think and pray about it first.
