Fordham University is a private university in the Jesuit tradition that was initially established in 1841 as St. John's College on old Rose Hill Manor in the village of Fordham (then part of Westchester County but now in The Bronx). The Manhattan Campus (between 60th/62nd Streets and Columbus/Amsterdam Avenues) was built as part of Robert Moses' slum clearance plan that also included Lincoln Center. The campus sits just to the north of the Church of St. Paul the Apostle, also a Jesuit institution.
150 West 62nd Street was a new building constructed in the early 2000s for Fordham University.
