Einstein’s Jack and Pearl Resnick Campus
situated on approximately 38.6 acres along Morris Park Avenue and Eastchester Road, in the Morris Park section of the Bronx. The campus is divided into north and south sectors by Morris Park Avenue, with a “Main Street” running across the avenue between the Leo Forchheimer Medical Science Building and the Michael F. Price Center for Genetic and Translational Medicine/Harold and Muriel Block Research Pavilion.
Leo Forchheimer Medical Science Building:
Einstein’s very first building, the Forchheimer opened in September 1955. At the time, the eight-story building included research laboratories, lecture halls and teaching spaces, the library and administrative space. It was later expanded to include Robbins Auditorium, a 675-seat formal auditorium. It is part of the central hub of the Resnick Campus. (#s 4 and 2 on map)
Abraham Mazer Building:
This seven-story was constructed in 1958 as a student housing facility. It included the Lubin Student Center, which consisted of a dining hall and student lounge. Following construction of the Staff Housing buildings in 1973, Mazer was reconfigured to provide administrative space, along with the Lubin Dining Hall and the Singer Faculty Club dining room.

Jack D. Weiler Hospital of the Albert Einstein College of Medicine:
In 1963, in recognition of the need to provide more clinical settings for its medical students, Einstein constructed the 396-bed Weiler Hospital at the southern end of its campus. While the medical school operated the hospital for several years, it was subsequently leased to Einstein’s University Hospital, Montefiore Medical Center, and serves as Montefiore’s Weiler Division. The hospital remains a major resource for teaching and clinical programs of the College of Medicine. (# 1 on map)
Ullmann Research Center for Health Sciences:
This 12-story building expanded research space on the campus in 1966. Skyway bridges link Ullmann to Forchheimer. (# 6 on map)
Rhinelander Residence Hall:
Located a few blocks northeast of the main campus, Rhinelander was built in 1962 and later acquired by Einstein. Initially providing housing for students, today Rhinelander offers apartments for mostly postdoctoral fellows. (# 15 on map)
Louis E. and Dora Rousso Center:
Located a few blocks west of the main campus, Rousso houses Yeshiva University's Ferkauf Graduate School of Psychology, along with various Einstein clinical programs and administrative offices. (# 12 on map)
Rose F. Kennedy Center for Research in Mental Retardation and Human Development:
In 1970, Einstein constructed the nine-story Kennedy Center on land leased from the NYC Health and Hospitals Corporation, adjacent to its affiliate Jacobi Hospital. Its research laboratories and facilities focus on issues related to developmental disorders and furthering understanding of function and dysfunction of the brain and central nervous system.(# 17 on map)
Belfer Educational Center for Health Sciences:
This 13-story building was constructed in 1973, to house administrative offices and teaching space. Belfer is connected via bridges to Forchheimer. (# 7 on map)
Staff Housing Complex:
In 1973, construction also was completed on three 28-story apartment buildings to provide a centralized location for student housing. The trio of buildings offer 635 apartments, ranging from studio to three-bedroom, and also are linked to a parking garage. (#s13 and 14 on map)
Irwin S. and Sylvia Chanin Institute for Cancer Research:
In 1979, this six-story building created space for laboratories devoted to cancer research. Chanin, which is linked by bridges to Forchheimer, is home to the Albert Einstein Cancer Center. (# 3 on map)
Anne & Isidore Falk Recreation Center / Max & Sadie Friedman Athletic Facility:
This 22,000-square-foot sports complex is located adjacent to the Staff Housing Complex. Its facilities include a lap pool, exercise/weight rooms, squash, racquetball and basketball courts, and a suspended running track. The Falk Recreation Center also offers a multitude of classes and intramural opportunities are offered throughout the year. (# 16 on map)
Samuel H. & Rachel Golding Building:
This eight-story addition to the Forchheimer building houses research laboratories. (# 5 on map)
Gruss Magnetic Resonance Research Center:
Located between Forchheimer and Chanin, this three-story building offers state-of-the-art MRI technology for conducting both human and animal studies. (# 10 on map)
Michael F. Price Center for Genetic and Translational Medicine/Harold and Muriel Block Research Pavilion:
In 2005, Einstein signed a 99-year lease for 10 acres of property on the Bronx Municipal Hospital site. This land, located directly across Morris Park Avenue from Forchheimer’s original “main entrance” to the campus, is now the site of the Price Center/Block Research Pavilion, a five-story research complex devoted to genetic and translational medicine. It also is home to the Samuel and Ethel LeFrak Auditorium and an adjacent atrium where many important lectures and seminars are held. (#18 on map)
The front door of the Price Center/Block Research Pavilion aligns with the front door of Forchheimer, creating a pedestrian walkway between the two buildings to form Einstein's “Main Street” – a busy thoroughfare connecting the north and south sides of the expanded campus.
Van Etten Building:
The 10-acre parcel also includes this seven-story structure, built in 1955 by Bronx Municipal as a tuberculosis hospital. Since taking over this building in 2009, Einstein has renovated a series of spaces to house its 22,000- square-foot Ruth L. Gottesman Clinical Skills Center, as well as a 4,000-square-foot clinical research arm of the Children's Evaluation and Rehabilitation Center, called the Cognitive Neurophysiology Laboratory. Further renovations within Van Etten are under way. (# 19 on map)
Waters Place DOSA Clinic:
A short distance from the main campus, on the grounds formerly held by the NYS Department of Health, the College of Medicine constructed a three-story building to unify outpatient services of Einstein’s Division of Substance Abuse (DOSA) under one roof. (# 23 on map)
Albert Einstein College of Medicine is located in a quiet residential area of the northeast Bronx. It is surrounded by single-family homes and apartment buildings that constitute the neighborhoods known as Morris Park, Eastchester and Pelham Parkway. The neighborhood also is home to Einstein affiliates Jacobi Medical Center and Weiler Hospital (a division of Montefiore Medical Center)
It is a tight-knit, culturally diverse community, located in close proximity to many popular Bronx attractions, as well as to Manhattan and Westchester County. The Bronx Zoo, the New York Botanical Garden, Yankee Stadium, Orchard Beach and City Island are all within a 15-minute drive of the College of Medicine, as are a broad selection of restaurants catering to all tastes and appetites.
