    Enjoyed being a part of the NY NOW trade show here. The staff were very friendly. Recommend bringing your own water and food if you're an exhibitor as concessions can get somewhat pricey.

    This massive convention center has a total area space of 1,800,000 square feet! On a smaller note, the center contains an intimate plaza of neon green benches. Read more

    I had the best chicken pot pie of my life here downstairs. Mendy's is good and you feel like you're living in a Seinfeld reference, but it's freaking pricey.. sandwich & a soda is 20 bucks.

    If you go to the New York International Auto Show here don't forget about the North hall. Some of the cleanest and least used bathrooms in the whole convention center too. If you go Saturday go early!

    Plenty of cool events and conventions here. Lots of construction surrounds the building, though, so be careful. Is now accessible by Subway. Mega and Bolt Bus stop right across the street.

    was here for Bookcon 2015, great event. can't get over how huge this place is! tip, if events get crazy & lines for the girls bathrooms are super long, they'll convert some men's rooms to ladies rooms

    for New York Comic Con tickets, keep an eye on their Twitter/Facebook pages to know when they go on sale. Typically its in Spring. Also if you work in a creative field, apply for a Pro pass its cheap!

    Great location for an event! Just went there for Comic Con 2013! Advice? Park at the garage on 42nd street that has the online coupon for Javitz center events.

    Auto show was great. Big gripe with lack of outlets to recharge phones. So much hype about social media and then 3 charging stations for thousands of ppl.

    Also, if you're going to sell your liver to eat there, make sure you try a gyro from the Greek joint in the basement. It's actually delicious. Still too pricey though!

    After a long day of exhibiting (or attending!) definitely head over to Uncle Jack's Steakhouse and unwind. Hands down the best steaks on the island. Located on 9th Ave. between 34th and 35th.

    The water fountains are sort of hidden, but there are actually a lot of them in Javits. Just walk toward the bathrooms and they'll be on the red-painted walls before you actually go into the bathroom.
  • Untapped Cities
    Atop the Javits Center, there is a 6.75-acre green roof, which reduces heat gain and prevents approximately 6.8 mil. gallons of storm water run-off annually. Read more

    Beautiful structure. They used to have an open balcony in the back that looked out over the Hudson but for some reason now it's been closed.

    Did you know? We have a Citi Bike station directly outside Javits Center - at 34th St and 11th Ave. Grab a bike and go uptown, across town, or downtown!

    Great place to hold a decent size convention but there is poor reception in the place. Also, I wish it would expand to be larger.

    The bathrooms should have more stalls though. You are allowed to bring in outdoor drinks/food which is awesome.

    Try the Sabrett Hot Dogs - Better than your average street hot dog and pretty much the only thing I'd eat even if I wasn't hungry and stuck at NY Comic Con.

    There are usually two Sabrett carts. For some reason, one can have a long line while 200 feet away, no line at all. Don't waste time waiting. Check the other!
