2018 NYU GOC Meeting Logistics
Details will be available by next week. Meanwhile, here is some information to help you make travel arrangements.
Meeting site: Translational Research Building, 227 East 30th Street, in the Murray Hill neighborhood of Manhattan.
Accommodations: A block of rooms has been reserved at a group rate at the Shelburne Affinia Hotel, a comfortable hotel a 10 or 15 minute easy walk from the meeting site and convenient to public transportation.
Getting to New York: by air from far away, Kennedy Airport is more convenient than Newark but both work. From closer to New York, LaGuardia also works although it lacks useful public transportation into Manhattan and is buried in construction aimed at improving its third-world amenities. Details on getting into the city from all three airports will follow. The meeting will start first thing on Saturday May 12 (so plan to arrive on Friday) and will end on Monday May 14 early enough in the afternoon to enable people to get to the airport for overnight flights to Europe.
Registration fee: Amount and payment details to be determined, but we hope to keep the amount low and find a convenient way to pay.
Food and other needs: A roster form for you to log this information is under construction.
See you in May!
- New York is a large, busy city with many hotels but mid-May is a popular time.
- We have a block of rooms at the Shelburne NYC (a 10-15 min walk from the meeting venue, comfortable, and very convenient to public transportation). They will only hold rooms until April 6, so book early. Rooms have been reserved for arrival on Friday May 11 and departure on Monday May 11 or Tuesday May 12. You can book a room online here or by phone to 866-233-4642 - identify yourself as part of the GO Consortium (NYU Medical) Room Block to guarantee the special rate. The room rate is $289 nightly ($249 + taxes), a very good rate for a room with free WiFi and private bath.
Please add your name to the table if you intend to attend the meeting, and the dinner (Sunday), so we can get a headcount estimate.
