Three options

Nota bene:

There are no blocks of rooms reserved for colloquium participants. Please make your own reservations by contacting the option of your choice. Generally, the earlier you book, the better the price (though modern marketing algorithms make generalizations of this sort tricky).

Option 1: Book a Brooklyn hotel

  • Use this map to find a suitable Brooklyn hotel (I recommend against booking a Brooklyn hotel outside the area encircled in purple on the map):

Option 3: Book a Manhattan hotel, AirBnB, etc.

  • There are abundant, if more distant, hotels and other sorts of accommodation across the East River in the borough of Manhattan. Generally, the nearer to Brooklyn the shorter the travel time. But being near an appropriate subway line makes a considerable difference. (See appropriate subway lines just above.) Approximate travel times by subway from some Manhattan landmarks:
    • Financial District – 30 minutes
    • 14th St./Union Square – 35 minutes
    • Washington Square Park (Greenwich Village) – 40 minutes
    • Grand Central Terminal – 45 minutes
