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.
For those traveling to New York City, we will be offering the option of non-smoking, four-person suites in an NYU residence hall. We will not be able to confirm rates until January, but the 2018 rate was $65 per night for a shared bedroom in a multi-occupancy suite and $96 per night for a single bedroom in a multi-occupancy suite. Suites are air-conditioned, furnished with bed linens and towels, and equipped with wireless internet service. We will ask attendees to sign up for housing in December.
We will send out a list of hotels at various price points, both within Greenwich Village and in other neighborhoods around New York City. Apartments and bedrooms are also available for short-term rental through Airbnb. For questions about lodging, please contact Jennifer Baker at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In an effort to expand and diversify the participants in the biannual conference, the Melville Society will be offering at least four 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). Grants will cover the registration fee and provide $300. Online application for travel grants will open after conference proposals have been accepted.
Please consider making a tax-deductible donation to the travel grant fund.
