General Accomodation Info and Websites
NY Magazine Article - A link to "A Cheap Guide to NYC". You can browse their suggestions for hotels under $150, with other general NYC info. Check the ChelseaSavoy, a newer centrally located hotel with a good rate for a simple clean room close to all the action.
Kayak.com , Hotels.com - You can try your favorite search engine to try to get a cheaper rate at a hotel. By trying several sites, you can sometimes get a better deal. I have found these search engines to give the cheapest rates when you want to include all types of accomodations, including hostels and hotels. You can see reviews of the properties to try to help you make a decision.
Hostels - If you just need a place to crash, and you don't mind sharing a room with others you don't know, then you may consider staying in a hostel. In NYC, they can vary from horrible to adequate. While not for everyone, they provide a cheap stay for a night or so. It's been awhile since we checked the hostels, so can't recommend any specific place, but check the reviews if you opt for this type of room.
Nightlife in NYC
NYC has changed dramatically from years ago. There is a much more subdued night life. Since the LURE and the Spike have closed, the Eagle is the only leather bar left in the city. You can check their website for info.
There is also a magazine that can help you decide what to do while you're in the city. NEXT comes out each week, and lists all the clubs and bars, restaurants, etc. While most of the listings aren't related to BDSM or leather, they do give a comprehensive guide to the city. Check out NEXT WEEK in NEXT for the magazines "can't miss" weekly parties.
We hope you include our Sunday night party in your NYC visit and enjoy your stay in our fine city!
