Accessing university buildings

All NYU buildings have a guard at the door and require an ID to enter. (This is also true for CUNY, where the workshops will be taking place.) Please bring a passport or a US driver’s license with you. Unfortunately, you cannot enter the NYU library without an NYU ID.

 

Getting to New York City

Please see NYU’s Getting to New York page for helpful information on the airports, train stations, and bus stations that serve the area. John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) is the most common airport that people fly into. Cab fare from JFK is $60 into Manhattan and metered to other boroughs. For public transit options from JFK, take the AirTrain to Jamaica Station or Howard Beach, where you can change to a subway or LIRR (overground) train. If you are flying into Newark International Airport (EWR), the best way to get into the city is to take the NJ Transit train to NY Penn Station; taking a taxi from EWR is not recommended. LaGuardia Airport (LGA) is accessible by a combination of bus and subway; cab fare is around $40.

 

Lodgings

We recommend reserving your rooms as early as possible as New York’s tourist season runs year round. The NWAV47 committee has managed to organize block rooms for the conference. Please check back shortly for available rooms.
 

Child and Family Care at NYU

NYU does not provide a child care facility for its employees or for researchers attending NYU-hosted conferences. There is a page with some suggestions on hiring a babysitter while at NYU.
