Founded by the Pace brothers in 1906 in downtown Manhattan, Pace University has grown into an internationally-recognized institution with campuses spread throughout New York City, White Plains, Pleasantville and Briarcliff Manor. Pace was originally located in the former New York Tribune building to educate students in accountancy and business - practices that established the Pace Standardized Course in Accounting, which was taught nationwide until the '20s. Today, Pace's graduate programs in environmental law, family nurse practitioner, business,rc and theater are among the highest rated in the U.S.
The university's downtown Manhattan campus is located next to the Financial District, providing students with university housing or off campus housing a short walk to Little Italy, South Street Seaport, Wall Street, the new World Trade Center and Chinatown. Students living in college housing in the Pleasantville-Briarcliff campus have direct access to Pace's Environmental Center, which is also next to the Trump National Golf Club. The White Plains campus is home to the university's School of Law and is only a 30-minute train ride to Manhattan.

Inside the Actors Studio has hosted such notable guests as Al Pacino, Alec Baldwin, Ben Stiller, Natalie Portman, Julia Roberts, and James Franco, among many others.
