Hotels in downtown Flushing (see map below) are conveniently close to the campus, so we recommend out-of-town attendees to look for lodging there (for instructions on how to get to campus from downtown Flushing, click Venue on the right). Downtown Flushing is known for its asian restaurants including Chinese, Korean to Malaysian and Thai (click here for a quick guide). It is also easy transportation into Manhattan: the #7 subway line ends at Main Street and Roosevelt Avenue, in the center of the neighborhood, and the Long Island Rail Road has a station near the #7 train.
