Seeking 2br rvr view: must seat 45

October 28th, 2011 4 comments

Help!

We (Lou Rosenfeld and I) want to bring our workshops to New York in the Spring, and we’re looking for a nice place to hold them.

A workshop venueHave you attended a talk/seminar/conference somewhere in the Big Apple recently? 

We’re looking for a room that seats about 45 people, with some tables for PCs. It has to be something we could rent for two or three consecutive days, from 8 to 5.

And, of course, a decent screen and PC projector. And wi-fi. Lots of wi-fi.

We’re not looking for a hotel conference room. We actually *like* funky spaces (we’ve done science museums, a silent movie theater, and even a zoo in the past), as long as they’re clean and comfortable.

If you know of anything, please either add a comment here or send me email: skrug@sensible.com.

Thanks!

    Steve — back in 2009, I attended the one-day Joomla Day New York City conference at this location:

    You want funky, but relatively cheap, and some wifi and tables and projectors, this is it. As I recall, it was on the 16th floor of a building near Penn Station. You walked in and it looked like an antique shop, filled with all kinds of things. In the back, there were rooms for meetings.

    Best of luck for this. I attended your very first workshop in 2002, back at the Brattle Theatre in Cambridge.

    I’ve attended a couple of workshops at the New York Open Center – not sure if it would meet your needs and it’s a lovely space. http://www.opencenter.org/
    PS A friend recommended Don’t Make Me Think and I’m loving it.
