Sitting deep inside the Hell’s Kitchen neighborhood overlooking the Hudson River, it is a central location for concerts, expos and more. Unfortunately, a quick search online will show you that parking in the area can range anywhere from $15 an hour up to $25 or more, and that probably won’t even cover the time it takes you to get into the convention center. For most people traveling in a group, hiring a transport service is typically far less expensive and guarantees you can get as close as possible to the events center. Read More

You will also gain buy-in for the new policy by being inclusive in the early stages. Read More
