Beware of soliciting travel agencies!
In past years, we have been alerted of several travel agencies aggressively soliciting event attendees. It is important to note that the information these agencies provide is often untrue, many times involving service fees, non-existent room blocks, non-refundable deposits and false rates. Don’t fall for their sales pitch! IMPORTANT! Remember to only book your hotel through Connections Housing (Par Avion) as they are the only official housing company associated with this event.

Getting Around New York City
The best way to get around NYC is through a combination of walking and the City’s inexpensive and energy-efficient 24/7 mass transit system. NYC’s subways and buses are operated by the MTA (Metropolitan Transportation Authority). They provide a fun way to extend sightseeing— and it gets you where you need to go. Other interborough connections include a recently expanded ferry system and even an aerial tramway.
Getting an MTA MetroCard is your first step to navigating the City by subway or bus. You can purchase a MetroCard at any subway station from multilingual machines (which accept cash and credit and debit cards) or booth attendants. You may also use exact change (no dollar bills) to ride any city bus.
Riders have three options for fare payment: a single-ride ticket, a pay-per-ride MetroCard or an unlimited-ride MetroCard. There is a $1 fee to purchase a MetroCard, so be sure to retain it—and check the expiration date on the back of the card (the MTA will issue a new MetroCard for no charge if your card has expired or is damaged). A single-ride ticket costs $3, is sold only at vending machines and must be used within two hours of purchase. With a pay-perride MetroCard, the base fare for a subway or bus ride is $2.75; minimum purchase is $5.50, maximum is $80. An unlimited MetroCard enables users to ride all subways and buses as often as they like and costs $33 for seven days or $127 for 30 days. Additional discounts are available for seniors age 65+ and disabled riders. For a map of New York City’s subway and bus system, click here.
