Locked down two tickets for you and a friend? Good, let’s go on.
Where is New York Comic Con being held?
You’ll find all the panels, people in costume and sci-fi shopping you could ever want at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center on Eleventh Ave in Hell’s Kitchen. The Javits Center is enormous, so make sure you have a map and an action plan for hitting every booth and event you’ve been dreaming of since last year’s con.
To get there using the NYC subway, you can take the 1, 2, 3, A, C, or E lines to 34th St–Penn Station. You’re still going to have to walk from 8th Avenue to 11th, but that’s just more time you have to show off your well-constructed costume.
When is New York Comic Con?
New York Comic Con starts Thursday, October 5 and runs through Sunday, October 8. (NOTE: Costumes, though common, are not mandatory, so don’t feel like you absolutely need to get sewing if you don’t have your tights tailored and ready to go already.)
