    Not sure if you want something swanky, close to CanJam, or affordable?

    If the latter two, the Pod hotels might be worth looking into. There's one in Hell's Kitchen, which is a close walk to CanJam. The rooms are pocket-sized - you won't be swinging dead cats in them - but they're decent enough.

    Good call! I'm a bigger lad, 6'1" so Pod hotel might not be the most ideal thing for me haha! I think something a step up might be better. I'm unfamiliar with hotel pricing but I feel like $300 for the weekend seems reasonable? Ideally close to CanJam would be the best bet, if not, close to transportation to it!

    If you get a deal, that might work. Before the pandemic, prices were unsurprisingly nuts, often well north of $250 a night. I've no idea what they're like now. As with everywhere else, the tourist and convention industries suffered severely during the pandemic - the stores and restaurants around Times Square were especially hard hit - but things have been getting better since the spring. The trick is how hotels are predicting demand for February and whether there are deals being offered yet.

    I looked at one place I know of and it's already all sold out.

    Sorry I can't be of more help; being local means I don't know the hotels all that well.

    I'd also like to meet up with any NYC SBAF folks, either at CanJam or elsewhere.

    How are you guys lugging all those equipment in Manhattan and finding parking spot? Won't long island area with parking be more accessible for people bringing gears to the meeting?

    Only one of our meets was in Manhattan, and it was during labor day weekend or something, so there were more parking spots than typical. Others used car services.

    Location really depends on who's hosting or locations that we can get reasonable rates for a small group of people.

    I'm in NY (well... Staten Island, which is basically NJ) now and will be here for the foreseeable future. If anyone wants to come for a visit and hear some ETA cans, I'm happy to have visitors. I can probably come into lower Manhattan or Brooklyn to meet up with any Friends pretty easily too. Not sure if I'll make an appearance at CanJam in February - time will tell :)

    If I go up to NYC for a visit, I'm going to see you shirtless.

    I am in Brooklyn can always bring my stuff over as long as parking is available. Just waiting for my DNA Stratus at the moment.
