CMJ Registration at Judson Church

Once you’re on the ground in New York City, you’ll want to head to CMJ’s headquarters at Judson Memorial Church, located at 55 Washington Square South (between Thompson and Sullivan Streets) adjacent to New York University’s Greenwich Village campus. This is where you register and pick up your badge.

CMJ Conference

All CMJ daytime conference activities, including all panels, speakers, mentoring sessions, the CLE/CPE legal seminar and College Day, are held at NYU’s Kimmel Center on Washington Square Park, just one block east of Judson Church, where you pick up your badge. Here, you’ll also find a place to lamp out and recharge in the CMJ Registrant Lounge in the Eisner & Lubin Auditorium on the 4th floor.

Venues

Getting to all the CMJ venues is a bit more complicated, since there are over 80 of them! Here’s a handy map to help you out. All venues are subject to change.

Transportation

The best way to get around New York is on foot. Familiarize yourself with a map of lower Manhattan with the points of interest mentioned above and then embark on your adventure, in sensible shoes.

The Subway is the the second best way to travel, and handy for getting across town in a hurry. Head here to check out the Metropolitan Transportation Authority’s website and all the MTA’s subway and bus lines. See below for subway directions to CMJ Registration Hall .

Taxis are ubiquitous in NYC, with more than 10,000 Yellow Cabs in service. Just make certain you’re hailing the yellow cars, those are the cabs licensed to pick up hails in the city. We don’t recommend hailing unlicensed livery cabs or random cars. For more information check out the Taxi & Limousine Commission’s website.

New to the city this year is the Citi Bike system, operated by NYC Bike Share, with thousands of bikes at hundreds of stations around Manhattan and Brooklyn. The bikes are available 24/7, with easy pick up and drop off at any station. Have a look at them all here.

Uber can connect you with a driver at the touch of a button. The service seamlessly delivers a car to you through an easy to use app. Request a ride and have a driver curbside in minutes. There’s no need to carry cash. When you reach your destination, your fare is automatically billed to your card on file, no need to tip. Best yet, Uber is offering CMJ registrants, artists, and press, who are new Uber users, discounted rides during Music Marathon!

CMJ 2013 Registrants will receive a promo code to redeem the offer. The promo code can be entered in the app, or into your account at uber.com by clicking the Promotions tab. This discount applies to uberX, UberBLACK, and UberSUV (uberTAXI excluded). Visit Uber.com/nyc for local info!

Airports

New York City is serviced by multiple airports, including LaGuardia, John F. Kennedy International, and Newark Liberty (in nearby New Jersey).  All have robust ground transportation options to get you to your hotel or straight to CMJ.
