Hey guys,

I booked a place at the Y, about 5 blocks from the conference. However, I made the stupid mistake of going to Hotwire and booking a place that I thought was walking distance to the conference. They have a stinky nonrefundable policy and I can't get out of it. Since I'm going to have to pay for it, does anyone want it at a reduced rate of $50/night? It's a suite at the Murray Hill East Suites on 39th St and it's for 4 nights from Wed, the 17th, and check out is Sun. Also, I requested for two beds if you'd like to split it with a roomie. Please let me know if you're interested or I'm going to have to figure out how to fake a death certificate so I can get my money back.

Jay

Looks like the Murray Hill Suites is a 3-4 block walk to the Grand Central/42nd Street shuttle, which would take you to the Times Square subway station, where you could catch a #1 Broadway train to Columbus Circle, then it is 2 long blocks to John Jay. Maybe you could try to get rid of your room on Craigslist NYC, if you can't find anyone else. There was a guy out of Chicago that wanted to share a room looking a week or two ago, I don't know if he has found anything yet.

Cab would only cost you like $8-9 seems cheaper to me then what you would lose even if you got someone to take the Murray Hill Suites off your hand at $50 a night. I'd cancel the Y and stay at Murray Hill Suites thats just me.

Thanks Jason. Since no one seems to be jumping on this, I think I might as well shack up at this joint. Besides, the logistics of it all and any incidental charges might make things messy. The good thing is I can get most of my money back from the Y.

Thanks for the 411 Mark! I think I might just take the subway.

Thanks guys. See you all there.

Jay
