New York 2012

I made my reservations and bought my airplane tickets, so it's official: I'm going to the winter SCBWI conference at the end of January. I'll be staying two subway stops away from Grand Central, where the conference is, but for $99 per night, the small commute in is totally worth it (Hotel Thirty-Thirty, just in case anyone out there's a bargain hunter like me).

I don't think I'll be doing the Friday intensive day (although if they're all with editors, it might be tempting), but I'm staying through Tuesday, so I can hang out with friends and see more of the city. Hope to see you there!

Have fun, Ara! Wish I could go again. Once any grant money/book sale money comes through, I'm there!!!

When I saw $99. a night, I was all set to warn you of a bad neighborhood. Nope, you done good. Great area and an amazing price. Enjoy!

Thanks, Charlie! Glad to hear it's in a good neighborhood. I've been nearby, since a friend of mine works around the corner, but I'm still not terribly familiar with New York. Looking forward to the trip!
