A TOUR IN COLUMBIA UNIVERSITY NEW YORK


all right the thing about it New York is this really cool city that everybody romanticizes and it seems as though and I think one of the reasons why your blog is so popular is because you show a lot of images of New York of the real New York as well people would imagine New York to be you show the food you show the travel you show the events and they and the people and all the things that we wouldn’t normally see from the movies but that all creates this mystique about New York and Columbia helps add to that mystique and that’s why you see it frequently [Applause] [Music] [Applause] [Music] [Music] even a cinnamon is amazing video service songs Akina Kumba universe in a chrome each is a prophecies stimulus even consume everything I connect from the Koala were in Baku now is you know significant Rothstein is putting dollar said the same ok no estas el número trinomial sings with the sea / want but all the way they are kicking try fuzzy this is destiny Habakkuk in a French

Indianapolis caliber in otaku now George Ella by cooperating interrupting Prince Yuma this squishy not gonna go falafel is sickening to 80 cartons Eugene Panisse the fine panel bug huh pegye noise sir depositor mochi we’re here we love learn what’s up I have hey everybody from Brazil Walton people I’m loving Brazilians I’m telling you I am like Brazil I’m finding everyone Brazilians everywhere now I like the old fire I’m like you got everywhere in this country and it’s Brazilian see why I never it was like he reveals the invisible population and now they’re like everywhere today we are at Columbia University there’s a visible moniker right there and this is the school that I graduated from in 2013 okay so having said that when I first started I was just like yeah it’s all right but now that I’m graduating I’m kind of proud of the whole idea now so you know it’s cool once you graduate but when you when you’re going it’s really really hard to hard school don’t get you know you have the real smart heart it’s really they put they give you a lot of work they can do a lot of work and it’s more about balancing the your life with the schoolwork and that’s what makes it what they call rigorous they’re known for rigor that they pride themselves on rigor but the thing that comes out of this is most of the people that come out of Columbia can handle anything that’s why I’m like really proud of my president former president he’s still my president that he could come into a situation in 2009 when all when this financial crisis was going on and because he had been here he could handle it because it literally was the exact same thing it’s all these things one assignment after another really really hard but you have to be able to think critically and be able to come up with solutions really fast and that’s one of the things that I realized later on that I gained from being at Columbia basically talking about Barack Obama stood or Keith what what are the other important people that study here everything was it I had that i have a lipst in fact oh you came prepared I came prepared good now I have a few funny stories don’t look don’t look at my junky purse oh my god okay I gotta keep this I gotta keep the permit out yeah that’s my permit yes we have a permit which I was surprised that because it’s a good that I asked you know you ask and you receive isn’t that cool like I would film a cold here’s how about Warren Buffett have we ever heard of Warren Buffett he studied at Columbia Business School right here yes have you ever heard of the actor Jake Gyllenhaal yes studied here okay Allen Ginsberg yes okay Alicia Keys is a funny story about Alicia Keys he study huh yes she said here was the funny story that shouldn’t make fun of her but I understand Alicia Keys is she’s very young she got signed to Columbia Records so Columbia Columbia okay to get signed to Columbia Records of course like I said Columbia is very tough while she’s building her career she’s writing songs and all this other stuff she’s doing her studies allegedly it says she say for just a month or so and then she had to she didn’t she laughed but you know I don’t think she’s hurt really bad for the fact that she’s got a print as the career I know so you know so if you could explain so Columbia University of what kind of what what they tried it’s an Ivy it’s Ivy League school what does that mean I believe school means initially you know how ivy grows on the side of the building you those schools were known for that and so it represented old-established mm-hmm kind of conservative set in their ways you know and not not as innovative but that’s not true anymore about Columbia Columbia is becoming innovative and this is a private school this is a private school it’s a private institution yes it is yeah there’s other schools like it Harvard Yale Princeton so these are the best schools in the country that’s what they say yeah it’s funny cuz in Brazil we have something like the best schools in the country is public schools yes that’s right it is not good I mean yeah because the private schools are considered exclusive mmm names if you exclusive to people who are wealthy and it kind of puts on this privileged and I gotta be very careful when I say this because it it’s supposed to be associated with people who are lots of money privilege in the sense that they had they come from families of means lots lots of money however because of that it could create a sense of a lack of diversity and one of the things that universities are finding is that people people who don’t necessarily have the means are providing a point of view that allows people to see things differently because you come from a certain status you may not be able to see a particular problem in a way that a person who comes from lessoning it’s mine and so you need the calm combined collaboration of different types of status social economic status you know different racial thing gonna close like family is they a new way to go absolutely there there’s lots of programs for that and that’s one of the things that’s how I got any money I had had zero zero dollars zero dollars okay but I got in because I was top of my class when I was in Los Angeles because that’s what they want they want super smart kids well I was a kid you know that means I enjoy wog wanna enjoy let’s click on poke soberly Kaimuki fast association based was reporting interacting a Columbia civil Barack Obama’s to the Khilafah walk one space was made far more this is to the rocky I garage into

Club young research research am is ecology only village peace kissing don’t you want space kisses most important to put off a to the key what are the most important research that I’m not gonna talk about them I really know [Music] this is Teachers College which is a very very famous college obviously for teachers and most of some of the most notable professors teaching anywhere in the world have come through the school is it doesn’t look very innovative but a lot of the ideas that come out of it are very innovative it’s very famous church all right listen yeah there’s a scene in the Ghostbusters 1984 version where you see dr. Bakeman and damn neck wood which is Bill Murray and Dan Aykroyd they’re walking right in here in a spiritual sense of course fangs serious about this especially at home I’m always serious but just a lot higher it was a lot lower [Music] yeah we either good because you know a lion a baby lion is a cub but the full-grown is a lion all right a male lion female okay the college kid Business School in here yeah Chubby’s ecology business darky he some amazing come some moose daughter let’s get going now this is my school right here this is a school of general studies this is for what they call non-traditional students anybody that has not gone straight from high school to college is considered a non-traditional student in terms of Columbia somebody else may define it differently but for Columbia that’s what they call it this a lot of people who are older I started school here I was in my 40s and you feel like most people think that if you’re in your 40s that you’re over the hill you shouldn’t even go to why bother well I went anyway because going to a private institution as a college was always a dream of mine and so I finally got to do that and so that’s why I what now you’re graduated I graduated in 2013 was still hard how does that feel it feels good now by the time I was you know still trying to find a job and this was right after the financial crisis but a lot of us couldn’t find jobs but we later we survived you know that’s one thing that about Columbia people we are really tough and resilient and persistent and you know we may cry a little bit in our quiet time we will come fighting so that’s pretty much what all of us did cuz a lot of us we came out we didn’t have jobs and we didn’t know what we were gonna do and we had tons of death but you know it’s all been taken care of now you know it’s like years later and just like the country survives so do we so [Music] change about the tamaki not French the video tech vehicle affecting my school to the farm all sake fellas me something I’ll comes to songs in a kingdom Tom Tom Tom one leg out so what is this what it’s just a library like ordinary ordinary lie but it has study spaces in it as well but it is the largest lot I think is the largest library for the entire campus so each one of one of these buildings here they have like a specific and more they may have more than one depending on relationship to the main the top to the main one like philosophy you may have more than one type of philosophy you also have the French language is also in philosophy ha and another above of languages there too so it’s just it’s a umbrella so students when they’re studying here they have multiple classes in multiple buildings they don’t stick to just one building no oh you literally when I started here I had classes here then I would dart over to a building there and then I did see how this guy’s running he’s running the class and because you’re you’re literally you’re running from here and there get to get a little bit lunch over here at the Student Center and you literally are cross it you do it a lot of walking you don’t you you will lose weight you will lose weight okay all of this back down there’s Harlan and when you go down you literally feel like you’re not in either space you don’t feel like you’re in Harlem you don’t feel like you’re at Columbia it’s just there’s one thing that’s cool about this this the park system here in New York is it makes you feel like you’re isolated from all of the craziness that’s going on in the city it’s just literally like you’re going down into a little Bowl and you’re isolated and that’s something you need with all this concrete makes you feel like Oh some greenery because if you notice it likes just cover it up you can’t see anything it’s like Central Park is the same way a lot of the spaces like a lot of spaces here on campus we’re designed by the same people who design Central Park my little toast sandwiches toasted sandwiches on the bench here and then I realized wait a minute that’s the same god yeah look at the retainer wall here look at that look how powerful that is and on both sides yeah check out the steps sorry I wasn’t stuck you know what’s this place called this place right here Morningside morning cyphers he stops the view is amazing memory Vista MonaVie da dadada he cannot waste here Fukasaku Darlene attack universidade so synchros tampoco the sobriety an average sitting here I have no idea who he is I’m sure he’s important or they would not have made a statue of him but do I know who he is [Music] it was somewhere in the back where they live yeah that’s where I live from the time I was a very newbie student they’d be terrified of being in New York and taking the subways how we took the one train everywhere I went if it didn’t connect to the one I didn’t go this was this was like my dorm but it was for one person okay I don’t know how College give that to you for free no no I had to pay oh god we won’t even talk about I almost became homeless I always became homeless because it was so expensive because it was like $1,000 or more than $1,000 a month and I never paid that much money 2008 that’s that’s it was like it was like a thousand and something but it was just it was unthinkable in any other city okay so because now in 2019 ten years later $2,000 is the median number that tells him $1,300 for this and I’m now a gal go get it I know I know but gave it to me back of the day was and I remember because I was I was living low-income housing yeah I could tell you more of my store when I was in LA it was really bad when I lived in LA I was homeless there too and then I became I got housing but it was in the project mm-hmm okay but then I worked really hard in school and I worked so hard that I transferred to Columbia Columbia University yeah and do you have anything to say about like why do the prices get got so high let me tell you why the students don’t on one the if you look at the violin is very narrow and the spaces are very small and there’s so many creative people that would always desire to come to New York because again it has that romanticize aspect of it it’s it’s expensive because the supply is doesn’t meet up to the demand so they can charge whatever they want because there’s so many people willing to pay just us just asleep on somebody’s couch for $600 you know that’s how deep this is just to sleep on somebody’s couch is $600 and then if you add a kitchen a bathroom and any bedroom to it you’re they can charge whatever they want because there’s such a high demand for housing any other place 30% your income is associated with getting rent here any in New York is 50% or more is devoted to housing and that’s why a lot of people working two and three jobs and/or people become very creative they have their quote unquote side hustles that they have a really good job they make it 80,000 a year but they have the little side hustle that they do in addition to the $80,000 a year job because they want that disposable income so they don’t have to live so tight because food is high here that was another thing that shocked me I’m coming from Los Angeles where all the fruits and vegetables are grown for nearly the world and come here I remember avocados would cost like $3 for a bag of avocados I came here for three avocados three it was $9 I said what did you just what did I just buy it it cost $9 because I choose this says the unusual number cuz you know how when you buy something you figure out in your head how much it’s gonna cost and I was what did I what did I just buy that cost $9 because I’m looking at the thing the sign is was I’ve one avocado was $3 when I’m used to paying $3 for an entire bag of avocados because it’s Central Valley in California that’s where all the fruits and vegetables go so that’s yeah that was cheap because it was no transportation here you got a you got a transfer pulling it over the plains and stuff like that so you add into the cost of it that’s expensive everything’s expensive the food’s expensive housing expensive I had a lot of money when I came here I burned through it so fast I did it that was that was the hardest of all those girls I got everybody I was starving I had to get on welfare I remember waiting they have like over by st. John this church cost a does a very famous church and they have for the homeless they have a soup what they call a soup truck comes by to give you soup and other things and I remember I’m a Columbia University student and I like a dummy I had a Columbia University shirt on and I’m waiting for the soup truck and I guess the people that the tourists thought I was homeless I still had this apartment over here and they’re taking pictures like you know click click click click it’s not my life I was so I remember being so hungry than trying to just keep my head above water it was hard it was really really hard yeah it was hard I mean I’m at left button now but at the time it was it would make a good movie though [Music] comecomecome Zakia interim Podesta University moon to the hierarchy the moving to a new mothers does this call as a keener he grass Allah Allah verdict the shortened chain track he permits you media paranoids nahi back on the stones at key on my song grab the origin my certainty pass all made our purposes are you teenage pimiento pasa as I see the opposition visually go ok first album eyes buzzer co-promoter produces Kaimuki economy inverse comical campos kicker Brandon Jones college gay keys to the key come to a king has dokie Agnes who does a dad and as you can helmets do a kid you American yes warm I got a salary even if you gonna put like individual named Veronica Quebrada mystic on Instagram on you may open a mean one who like about home as were something to budget to OS kinky levels is per coulomb universe and oh my god this a rocky hey thanks so much for bringing me here the first time for the first time no I don’t think it was the first time but this I think is this is the first time I ever did once so extensive where we going down and to the river and all that stuff so that was a little different yeah ok so thank you so much like comic the guys are gonna comment what they think about the video it’s pretty good you think it’s pretty good by the time you get finished doing your creative thing that you know we all that’s why we watch is because of your creative ability to make a story and make it pretty make pretty pictures out of what something makes you know make something out of nothing yeah but today’s not gonna be enough and there’s a lot of good content yeah alright so thank you I’ll see you next time [Music]
