I'm at that point in planning where I feel like throwing my hands up and writing CANCELLED!
But never fear, I shall persevere. OK so thanks to UI and the Ho's suggestion - http://www.airbnb.com. It seems like the cheapest way to do things.
I, personally, want to stay from probably Thursday night to Monday afternoon. That's 4 nights. We'll have to figure out how much everyone pays based on nights stayed etc.
But regardless, have a look and tell me what you guys think. I've briefly looked at a few. I'll get links up to some of my favorites later but you guys take a gander and let me know of any that catch your eye.
Also: If anyone was unable to come due to ticket prices would you be willing to chip in to help get that person to NYC?
