The Center for Climate Systems Research is a unit of the Earth Institute, Columbia University, and was established in 1994 for the purpose of enhancing the program of interdisciplinary Earth and Climate systems research both at Columbia and the NASA/Goddard Institute for Space Studies. NASA/GISS is a division of the Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, MD; GISS is located in NYC just off Columbia's main campus.
