- Aravind Adiga, Booker Prize-winning novelist
Plimpton has 15 residential floors, each with 4 suites. Rooms and hallways are tiled.
Each suite is comprised of 4 singles and 1 double. The doubles used to be single rooms that were converted in August 2012 by Residential Life and Housing to accomodate and unprecedented number of matriculating students.
There is a TV lounge, computer lab, and study lounge location on the 1st floor. Laundry is in the basement, along with the "Clay Collective."
Wheelchair access is on the street level through a locked door, left of main entrance (call the desk attendant for access). Both elevators stop on all floors including the basement.
Floor plans are available at http://barnard.edu/reslife/floorplans/Plimpton.pdf.
- Easy access to the northern Amsterdam Avenue restaurant row, including Max Caffe, Cafe Fresh, as well as (relatively) cheap Appletree Market and its DVD rental selection
- Easy access to Pupin and Schermerhorn buildings through the Amsterdam and 120th Street entrances; also proximity to the Teachers' College and School of Social Work libraries.
- Although campus is right across the intersection, it's a long walk to a gate that's open after 5pm. Getting special swipe access might be key.
