Albert Einstein College of Medicine is located in the northeast section of the Bronx, near the Bronx Zoo and Botanical Gardens. We are just over the Robert F. Kennedy Bridge (formerly Triboro) from Manhattan and near the Whitestone Bridge to Queens. Our Jack and Pearl Resnick campus, at 1300 Morris Park Avenue in the residential Pelham Parkway area, is easily accessible by train, bus, and subway. It’s a 30-minute trip on the express bus to Manhattan and a 30-minute car or cab ride to or from LaGuardia or JFK International airports.
