Easily accessible by public transit, especially with the opening of the Hudson Yards subway stop on the 7. Great place to hold conventions, with multiple floors and multiple food vendors to one side. Doesn't seem to be much in the way of food though if...More

What can you say about JJCS? It's huge, it's clean, the food is eat overpriced, you go there for a show or purpose that can't be met anywhere or any how else. If you need it, you'll go to Javits.

Overtime I got to an event there it's well organized. The staff is knowledgable and the events are fun. It's a very large place and it requires a lot of walking but there's plenty of food places and bathrooms around.

The Davits Center has its ups and downs. The space itself is good. It's clean, orderly and the staff are helpful. The downside is the transportation getting there. That will be changing though in a couple of years when the subway is extended. I walked...More

I went here to see two exhibitions. Getting there was easy via subway, and getting out by bus was equally easy. The location is scenic, the architecture of the Center as a whole is beautiful. It is a nice place to visit, even if not...More

I didn't notice any the day I was there. But if you should find it, the streets are wide enough to get away from it.
