That wouldn't be bad. See, I have 700 dollars to travel with, and one trip is one that is long over due, so any money I spend on this one comes out of the other. 200 wouldn't be bad, and I could still have a fairly decent time with the 500.

Yeah, if you manage to find a generous room discount on Hotwire, Expedia or Priceline, that price range sounds about right. However, in many of the busiest areas (especially around the meet-up site), hotel rooms around here can actually exceed $350/night (including taxes) if you were to pay in full. Hopefully most people coming to this meet won't have to pay that much per night for a hotel room, so I recommend looking for discounts early. The really cheap hotels on the much lower end of that price range, however, are mostly in the outer boroughs.

I personally think a very good place outside of Manhattan to look for cheap rooms is in the Long Island City section of Queens. Long Island City is as close as you can get to Manhattan from Queens, and I've found that there are a lot of cheap and good rooms around there (about $67/night, $72/night, $99/night, etc.). It's also just directly south of the neighborhood I live in, which is Astoria.

If you WANT A CHEAPER ROOM, share with me. I can't book rooms because I'm 17, but you can get a great deal by not only finding a discount but halving your room costs with me. I trust any one of you meet-up attendees enough to share a hotel room. Don't worry that I'm an underage girl. If you are male, I promise that I won't drug you, put your dick in my mouth, and then call rape.

I will be in New York City for three nights, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, but I don't mind shuffling rooms if it's necessary. However I figure that at least a couple people are, like me, staying until Monday morning due to lengthy transport or some other reason, and I ask those people to consider halving their room costs. I would like to get to the airport at 8:30 AM on Monday.

Yes, I plan ahead.

I have the full list of attendees. Several of the people going to this meet haven't been on Stickam even once. It does look like a hell of a lot of people coming are other Stickam regs besides me, though.

Ugh, I still don't know if I'm going or not. Everything with the job situation has changed and I don't even know if I'll have days off by the time of the meetup. Still interested in going, but we'll see.

This is something worth discussing, but I'm not sure how keen most people here are on museums in general. The good thing is that unlike the Museum of Sex, MoMA isn't age restrictive, so I don't have to think about where to put everyone else while the adults are in there. I'll wait and see what some other people here think before making a final call on this one.

She told me on Stickam once that she booked her room, and may have already got her plane tickets too. Her not going is extremely unlikely.

Hmm, it's that pricey? I'm going to have to look into it myself, and I'd still like to hear some more input from people about it, and how important going to the exhibit is to you. Personally, I'm somewhat curious about it, because I like some of Tim Burton's movies and plus, every now and then, people still say that I look like him.

behbehhhh id so love it if you went! please try hard :D
also, i love tim burton and all of his stuff. and i heard amazing things about the exhibit and even saw a few pictures (although I limited myself because i didnt wanna ruin it incase i went). i'm just a big fan of everything he's ever done because it's so original. 20$ isn't that much and, like you said, it isnt age restricted so thats nice. but it is super neat and creepy in a good way.

So... I'm pretty positive I want to go to this thing and will have the funds, means, and time with which to attend. I posted earlier in the thread saying I'd like to find a place to stay, preferably with someone who's chill and already lives locally, 'cause I really don't think I can afford to blow hundreds of dollars on a Hotel room. Somebody reach out to me with options, please. : )
