The Jacob K. Javits Convention Center is one of New York’s most popular event locations. 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.

Other big name events include the International Beauty Show, the JA New York Spring show, and New York Build 2017. There will also be plenty of other fashion events, car shows, concerts, movie premiers and more on the calendar throughout the spring and summer months.
Getting to Your Event
The typical time to get to the convention center from JFK or La Guardia is between 40 minutes and an hour. If you are coming directly from the airport, you should plan accordingly. For hotels located on the west side of Manhattan, plan on at least 25 minutes of travel to reach the convention center.
If you are attending a convention with a large group of business associates, the best way to manage transport is with a limo or executive car rental service. This ensures that all members of your party arrive on time and together. It will also save you a significant amount in bus or taxi fare and parking expenses if everyone can travel together. The cost of renting two or three cars, plus paying for hourly parking can easily overwhelm any travel budget for your group.
With so many big events coming up at the Jacob Javits Convention Center, it’s time to start planning your transportation well in advance.
