Maritime College is located on a 55 acre scenic waterfront property near the Throgs Neck Bridge where the East River meets Long Island Sound. The College is located in New York City at Fort Schuyler on the suburban Throggs Neck peninsula. Many parts of the campus provide panoramic views of the East River or Long Island Sound with impressive sights of coastal Connecticut, the North Shore of Long Island and the Manhattan skyline. The Fort, of 1850's vintage, houses the Business Administration/Marine Transportation Department, the Library, a Maritime Museum, and the seven million dollar Center for Simulation and Marine Operation which contains a state-of-the-art full Bridge Simulator. The Fort is flanked by modern dining halls, residence halls, lecture halls, recreational facilities and science and engineering laboratories.
