Some of us were born and raised here, others arrived for the first time in September from near and far. ICP is our home and our school, but New York City is our playground; we adore it and despise it, are inspired and challenged by it. Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, the Bronx, Staten Island, and the waterways that surround them, serve as a stunning backdrop to the learning and growth that happen to us when we choose to study together at ICP.
