Update 1. (04/30/2001): The travel awards have been made as of 04/30/2001. Through the generous support of our sponsors, the MAM department at Polytechnic University, and the home institutions of sponsored students, four graduate students will be funded to attend the workshop.

General Information: If you will travel to NY city by air, the following information may be useful for you. There are three well-served and well-connected airports in the vicinity:

JFK is connected to Brooklyn by subway. You take a free shuttle bus from the airport to the Howard Beach-JFK Airport subway station. At the subway, take the A train towards Manhattan. Get down at the Jay Street-Borough Hall stop. Polytechnic University is located on Jay Street (opposite the rear entrance of the Marriott) within walking distance (less than 2 to 3 minutes). The subway ride costs $1.50 one-way. Low travel cost but far.

From Newark you can take a bus (Olympia) to Manhattan’s Port Authority Bus Terminal for about $10.00. The bus terminal is internally connected to the Port Authority-42nd street subway station. Take the A train towards Brooklyn. Get down at the Jay Street-Borough Hall stop. Polytechnic University is located on Jay Street (opposite the rear entrance of the Marriott) within walking distance (less than 2 to 3 minutes). The subway ride costs $1.50 one-way. Do not quote me J, but Newark is notorious for flight cancellations.

From LaGuardia you can take a cab to Jay and Tillary Street ($20 to $25). This airport is my number 1 preference around here.

Note: The listed ride prices are best estimates only.
