We know a fair number of you come from out of town, and we want to welcome you to our great city. NYC is a is a great place to visit, with virtually unlimited things to see and do, but it can be a little overwhelming, so we’ve put together a list of suggested places to see and things to do, but feel free to venture out on your own as well.
We don’t have a block or rooms at any particular hotel, but we can make some suggestions of places.
Super 8 Park Slope: We would consider this the budget option. Located in Brooklyn, it is a short train ride away from the event, but far enough away that prices are more reasonable.
The Aloft: is a little nicer if you want a little more style in your stay, but still located in Brooklyn.
Hotel on Rivington: This is hotel is right in the heart of the lower east side, and walking distance from the Bowery Ballroom, but pricey due to location
Ace Hotel: Funky and trendy, this hotel is in a great location for Manhattan sightseeing. They even have rooms with bunk beds.
The Bowery Ballroom has a subway stop right outside with service via the J and M trains, and is also walking distance from the B and D trains @ Grand Street.
If you have a group, or are carrying a lot of stuff, take a cab they all take credit cards now, or better yet, try Uber. The drivers are friendlier, and the cars are nicer.
Breweries & Distilleries
Manhattan may be full of bars, but the outer boroughs have a lot of craft brewing & distilling to offer.
