The castle itself is part of Queen's University in Canada though, although I agree that the original poster was misleading. Very few Queen's students will ever go to the castle, unless they get in a special course to go there.

The architecture for NYU is a mixture of both pre-war and post-war buildings and is mostly centered around Washington Sq, though there are some locations in other parts of Manhattan.

Take a look:
