Finding accommodations near the venue
Babies Project is in the Flatiron District, which abuts Kips Bay and Chelsea neighborhoods, just south of Koreatown and Midtown, and just north of Greenwich Village.
When Lydia and I travel we use AirBnb, Booking.com and Hotels.com but, if you are willing to camp out a bit, we’ve heard good things about Couchsurfing.org (a friend met his husband that way!) and there are a couple of hostel sites (Hostels.com and Hostelworld.com came up in a search).
You can use the comments section below to connect with others who may be looking for a roommate or travel companion.
