    Erik Kantar

    Resident Advisor

    Erik Kantar is from Yonkers, NY and is an Economics, Journalism, and Political Science Major at Baruch College. Erik has an extreme passion for bike riding and once rode his bike 800 miles from San Francisco to Mexico. His new favorite thing to do in New York is ride his bike in Manhattan. He loves being part of an ecosystem of cabs, and cars, and what seems like a chaotic mess, which turns into a beautiful mess, once you’re in the mix of it all. Outside of bike riding, Erik enjoys playing guitar and photography. One of Erik’s new goals is to walk around NYC with a set destination in mind to find new things and experiences no one has ever found before. Erik says, there is no other way to absorb NYC than to aimlessly walk without a map or a destination. “All you need is an hour or two, and it will not only destress you but you will realize why NYC is the greatest city in the world. It’s the people’s faces, and the bikers, and the horns, and the fruit stands; it’s all a part of NYC. It’s not only the big buildings or 5th Avenue. It’s the little mundane things that make this city what it is.”
