Jay Walk

15 years in the making this breathtaking open-air plaza is five stories above sidewalk level and the size of a football field; giving John Jay College its first actual “campus.” With a boldly modern design that sets a distinguished standard in 21st Century urban outdoor spaces, the Jay Walk: Roof Top Commons is the only space of its kind in Midtown Manhattan. As a natural bridge to anchor historic Haaren Hall on 10th Avenue with the new building’s 13-story Tower on 11th Avenue, the Rooftop Commons gives everyone on campus ready access to the College’s sleek new adjoining Cafeteria, Student Dining Hall, and a dining room and lounge for faculty and staff.
