    How do you get tickets and where in NYC is it?

    I have a free airline ticket that I need to use up before July.

    NYC is too much fun, for a short period of time.

    If you don't mind, tell us:
    * How much you're spending on airfare
    * Where you get tix from
    * What is the name of the place where it's at. It has changed recently I know.
    * What hotels are in the area

    I'm saving my money for when Favre gos into the HOF. No connection to him or the team, just the fact that my wife has a mad crush on him and has her starting a new savings acct named "Favre". We've 3 kids too. How much are right arms going for these days?

    I believe fans get into the draft for free, you lined up outside and its first come, first served. It used to be at tje theatre attached to MSG, but Im not sure anymore.

    Good lucm have fun and take pictures for us it y'all go.

    Wear Kevlar, just in case. And keep an eye where the exits are. ;)

    That's probably where I'll end up too, but my best friend and I are looking for weekend trips to go to before our free tix expire. NYC at the end of April sounds like fun.

    Right on, man! That's great! :thumbup

    Just do us a favor and cheer your heart out regardless of who they pick. Philly fans still haven't lived down booing McNabb, and Texans fans don't need any bad publicity at this point.

    I look forward to your updates. :howdy:

    Good luck and have some fun while you're up there! I have plans to go to NY sometime in late March so I might be able to go to the draft, but right now I'm not sure. It's still a few months away.

    It should be here: Jacob K. Javits Convention Center - 655 West 34th Street - New York, NY 10001


    Tickets : First Come First Serve (Free) That's why I haven't made my mind up on going I would like to go;but I don't see myself having to stand in line around midnight that night to get in with all those jets fans. I'll do it if I have someone to go with, (group of 5 or more)

    April 29th,30th.

    I been planning to go to New York anyways, and I see this as a good time to go. anyone else is interested let's all hook up and go. my e-mail address is Thefelderfirm@aol.com.

    Out of curiosity, how long of a wait is it usually to actually be able to get in? Are we talking 30 minutes, a couple hours, or days?
