Twins on 9th & 34th. It was the spot for many comic industry people the last two years. There are a few others in the works but its mostly press events to promote one thing or another.

A friend of mine that lives in Jersey said it would be MUCH cheaper to stay in NJ and take the train in. You'd stand to save at least $100 per night on lodging.
