The subway runs at all hours and goes just about everywhere. The nearest stop is the 2/3 and R train station at Jay St/MetroTech.
Take Amtrak to Penn Station, which is located in Midtown Manhattan, or the Metro-North to Grand Central.
The closest major airports are John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK), LaGuardia Airport (LGA), and Newark International Airport (EWR). All are accessible by public transportation - train, bus, shuttles.
NYC has many fine hotels and hostels. We suggest something by the 2/3, R, 4/5, A/C, or G lines. Here are some hotels either in walking distance to the conference venue or some distance away but offering conference group rates.
