    I have just booked this tour as well. I’m also trying to find accommodation somewhere close for the night before and the night after but haven’t managed to find much yet.

    Hi all, I’m in NY form the 6th and after the trip I’ll be around until the 26th. So if people are wanting to make plans to meet up or sightsee in NY or around after the trip then I’m up for that! I’ve booked accomodation at a range of places to cover more ground but mainly midtown and uptown manhattan.

    Also the night before we depart I’m staying in Brooklyn, and we’ve got a kick start meeting at 7pm so anyone fancying it we could do dinner after that meeting?
