About New York City

 

New York City attracts more than 62 million visitors each year as a financial, cultural, art and scientific center. It is home to more than 120 colleges and universities and over 80 museums. A thriving performing arts scene includes on- and off-Broadway shows, and iconic attractions like Central Park, the Statue of Liberty, Wall Street and Times Square abound. With so much to explore, the “City of Lights” provides a vibrant backdrop for the first Metamaterials Congress outside of Europe. To learn more about NYC, see https://www.nycgo.com/.
 

Transportation

The Congress will take place at the City University of New York (CUNY)  Graduate Center  in the heart of New York City. The Graduate Center is well-connected to public transportation from its location near the Empire State Building at the corner of 5th Avenue and East 34th Street.

Pennsylvania Station, a hub for intercity and local trains and buses, is a ten-minute walk from the GC, and three major airports lie within 20 miles: LaGuardia Airport (LGA) hosting primarily domestic flights, and Newark (EWR) and John F. Kennedy (JFK) offering extensive international service.

Detailed schedules and a schematic overview of subway lines and bus routes are provided on the MTA website.
 


Venue

The Graduate Center’s facilities for the Congress include three auditorium-style halls: Proshansky, Elebash, and Segal, as well as seven break-out session rooms surrounding a concourse lobby. A sky-lit dining commons will host the reception dinner. Free wi-fi is available throughout the Graduate Center.

The two-day Doctoral School following the Congress will be hosted at CUNY’s Advanced Science Research Center (ASRC) in Harlem, a half-hour subway ride from the Graduate Center.
