Additional Accommodations:

These hotels do not have special rates for ERCC, but are economical alternatives to hotels listed above. 

Please be aware that New York City hotel rooms are small compared to other cities!  With so many hotel options, the best prices are probably found through discount sites such as Priceline.  Kayak is another helpful site that aggregates other travel sites to find the best possible prices.  In searching for/bidding on hotels, one should aim for the borough of Manhattan (rather than Bronx, Staten Island, Queens, or Brooklyn) for the most reasonable commute.  Some convenient areas or neighborhoods as they are listed on these sites include (from nearest to farthest): West Village/Meatpacking/NYU; SoHo/Tribeca; Union Square/East Village; Chelsea; Downtown/Wall Street; Empire State Building; Madison Square Garden; Grand Central; Rockefeller Center/Bryant Park; Times Square/Theatre District; Midtown West/Hell’s Kitchen; Midtown East; Central Park South.  We recommend these areas to keep subway commute times under an hour (and in many cases much less than that).

Dining:

Yelp will help you find whatever you’re looking for, and the NYU area offers some of the best dining options in NYC.  For quick and easy dining reservations, use OpenTable.

Conference Location: New York University
