Transportation and Lodging Tips

This page contains some travel information for your trip to New York City and our conference.

Location

This year, we are happy to be holding our NYC conference at Manhattan School of Music, located on the upper west side of the city, at the intersection of 122nd Street and Broadway.

It's convenient to the subway: take the uptown #1 train to 116th Street (map and travel info here:  http://www.msmnyc.edu/About-MSM/Visit-MSM/Travel-Information)

Below are some links you may find useful while traveling into New York City.

Accommodations

There are, of course, many fine hotels in the City. You can use any of the many travel sites (www.hotels.com, www.priceline.com, or www.orbitz.com) to research lowest priced deals.

You can read about some hotel options closer to Manhattan School of Music on this page:  http://www.msmnyc.edu/Offices/
Alumni/Events-and-Reunions/Hotel-Travel

As well as Union Theological Seminary Visitor Housing (It doesn't get more convenient than this: directly adjacent to Manhattan School of Music, 121st St. and Broadway, in the Columbia University area. Rates start at $135 plus tax.)

If you are looking for a moderately priced hotel, we might suggest the following for those who wish to experience the "downtown" atmosphere of Greenwich Village and Chelsea.

Leo House (run by nuns, but no religious affiliation is necessary to stay here)
W 23rd St, between 8th and 9th Ave
3 night minimum, book on or right after Oct. 15 for Jan. dates, at this price they sell out quickly!
$110/night w/ private Bath
Tel. (212) 929-1010
Reserve by fax with credit card: (212) 366-6801

Note: Conference co-host Angela Beeching often stays there (likes it a lot). Great location, lots of art galleries in the area (Chelsea) and it's either an easy subway ride to our conference, or about a nice 20-25 minute walk.
