I make a long-time in coming return to the city that never sleeps, so good thay named it twice, etc etc......this time with family in tow.

Thursday 22 November - Monday 26 November 07.

Would the forum have any suggestions/ recommendations for decent, budget type accommodation please?

I stayed in the Lexington last time round, so seek something maybe a LITTLE cheaper this time? And would Mr Lorayne mind a fan knocking on his door for a coffee for 5 minutes?!!

In anticipation, I thank you all.

Dear Darren,

If you see Harry, send my fondest regards.

I will, of course, be delighted to.

See YOU, though before that, in Portsmouth on Sunday 28 October, at one of the biggest, friendliest one-day magic conventions in the UK.

(That shameless plug wasn't too obvious, was it?!)

I hate shameless plugs of this nature and..................... I will personally tell Paul Gordon this when he lectures to the Munster Society of Magicians on Monday 8th of October 2007 at 8.00 pm at the South Court Hotel in Limerick.

Cheers from the Emerald Isle of Ireland,
John Bowden ;) ;) ;)

Don't know about budget accomodation but the last time I was there, a whole bunch of card guys used meet every Saturday afternoon.

Yup, there's two places: Cafe Rustico and Maui Taco. You can probably search the forum to find out more details -- I know I've posted them previously. If not, let me know and I can fill you in.

Assembly 1 of the S.A.M. meets at the Hotel Edison (an inexpensive hotel on Broadway, BTW).

The Magic Table meets on Fridays between 12 PM and 2 PM at the Caf Edison, Edison Hotel, 228 West 47th Street, New York, NY.

I hope to visit someday! I'm jonesin' for some Cheese Blintzes and Matzoh Brie! ... RefID=2075
