NYU is located at Washington Square in the historic Greenwich Village neighborhood of Manhattan. New York City is served by three airports, John F. Kennedy, LaGuardia, and Newark, and air travelers can take taxis or airport shuttles to Manhattan. Amtrak trains run to Penn Station, and Greyhound and other buses run to Port Authority. NYU's campus is accessible by multiple subway and bus lines. See the link "Getting to NYU" below for details
See the link below for a list of hotels that have negotiated special rates with NYU. Non-NYU faculty/students cannot book through the link below, but they can call hotels directly to inquire about the negotiated NYU rate for conference attendees. Please contact Jennifer Baker at firstname.lastname@example.org if you need verification of your attendance or other assistance.
In an effort to expand and diversify the participants in the biannual conference, the Melville Society has awarded eight travel grants to defray the cost of attendance for scholars of limited means (i.e. contingent faculty, graduate students without travel funding, scholars who are not otherwise able to afford international travel, or independent scholars). The grant competition has closed for the 2019 conference, but the Melville Society hopes to offer travel grants for future biennial conferences.
Please consider making a tax-deductible donation to the travel grant fund.
