  Jacob Javits Center
by kazander

Favorite thing: At least once a year I attend a convention at the Javits center, a beautiful modern glass building visible from the Henry Hudson Parkway. Usually It's the Photo Plus show (now, because I have to work at my company's booth, before that I just went for fun) But they hold all kinds of shows. Car shows, boat shows, any sort of hobby you're into there is a show for it! Most recently I attended the Pathways to Beauty and Wellness show. Which was geared towards women. All kinds of vendors displaying their wares, giving free samples ect... Usually you can get into these events for free if you register early enough, either by mail or online. If you are a walk in the entrance fees can be up to $25. At all the conventions there are also seminars on specific topics relating to the show. These seminars are not free and you must register for them in advance.

The Javits Center was also where we volunteered after the tragedy of 9/11

Fondest memory: Jacob K. Javits Convention Center — 655 West 34th Street — New York, NY 10001
