Cornerspotted: NYU's Delta Upsilon House at 116 W. 183rd St.

New, 5 comments

Yesterday's Cornerspotter was indeed the old Delta Upsilon fraternity house of New York University's University Heights campus in the Bronx. If you thought NYU's primary campus was in Greenwich Village these days, you'd be right. Although the University moved a mass of their undergraduate studies to the Bronx campus in 1894 to alleviate overcrowding around the Washington Square campus, and to follow the sweeping trend of uptown movement, NYU sold off the Bronx property to the City University of New York in 1973. The Delta Upsilon chapter at NYU has since withered into inactivity, along with most of the University's greek life.
