    HELP fellow CA'er! Need a place to stay in New York for couple nights.

    Hi all,

    I decided to go to New York for an 'art trip' and travel back and forth Boston,
    just for the Sargent paintings there
    Now I was wondering if anyone could provide me (travelling alone) with a place to stay for a couple of nights.
    New York seems quite expensive, accomodations wise..
    I'm easy going, won't cause much of a hassle and can cook a hell of a spaghettisauce
    I don't need a bed. The floor, bathtob, couch , whatever..is fine haha..
    Also didn't book the exact flight dates but am thinking early to mid november.
    ( as long as I'm back before the 25th, the NY marathon pushes plain tickets
    sky high then )

    Eagerly awaiting your reply's.

    Tom

    I was waiting with making final flight reservations till I had made
    all accomodations final. Trying to avoid overpriced last minute hotel bookings.
    I'm looking at going 10 or so days with going to Boston for 1 or 2.
    between 10 november and 25 november. Dates could vary a day or two
    depending on plain ticket availability.

    well,
    i dont live in NYC, so i can't help you there.

    but if you are here during november 11th, make sure you attend 'Art Out Loud 4' at the society of illustrators.

    Or does anyone know of any cheap hostels in the centre of New York?

    DSillustration: I'll see if I can make it, thanks for the link. wish I could just
    pay at the entrance though.

    I just stayed in a hostel in NY for about $35-40 a night.
    It wasn't as nice as some other hostels I've stayed in, but it was in a convenient location and liveable.

    good luck

    its pretty easy to find places to sleep in the city. theres a k-mart on 8th st that i go to and i always thought if i was a bum i'd just go there before they close, grab a pillow from the pillows section, and then find one of the huge cabinets they have, close it and sleep in it.
