Fordham has been responsible for generating thousands of New Yorkers since its founding in 1841. Of course, there are many students who are native New Yorkers and familiar with Fordham’s “campus” in New York City before they become students of the university. I am among this population, hailing from Brooklyn’s Coney Island.

Fordham is my school, New York is my campus, and Hell’s Kitchen dogs are my companions. As my senior year of college approaches quickly and the months of my apartment lease in Hell’s Kitchen pass by, I walk the streets of my community with a smile and wandering eyes. After a year, this is my neighborhood now. The restaurants are extensions of my apartment building, and members of the wait staff are my next-door neighbors. As I turn the corner onto Ninth Avenue, heading north toward campus, I bump into the fluffy, limping, panting, unleashed, four-pawed neighborhood regulars that parade our sidewalks. Their paw prints show up side by side with ours.
