World Stamp Show-NY 2016 Newsletter 3 Released


Fellow Rossica Members, the World Stamp Show in New York is just around the corner (2016!). If you experienced the World Stamp Show in DC, you know this one will be fantastic. Correspondence from the organizing committee is duplicated below for your info and use:

World Stamp Show-NY 2016 Newsletter 3 Released

The World Stamp Show-NY 2016 Organizing Committee is pleased to announce the release of its third quarterly newsletter on February 1, marking 27 months before the exhibition’s opening in late May, 2016.

The issue’s theme deals with the affordability of a trip to New York City to enjoy the 8 day show and many sights the “Big Apple” offers visitors. It covers transportation, lodging, food and attractions.

“We know many collectors out there are thinking about making a trip to attend this once-a-decade philatelic event but just don’t think they could afford it,” says WSS-NY 2016 President Wade Saadi. “With some advance planning you can make your stay in this area both enjoyable and financially possible. Bring the family along!”

Newark Liberty, Kennedy International and LaGuardia airports service thousands of flights daily from around the world including those of low priced air carriers. Bus and train service is equally abundant throughout the region.

Manhattan’s hotel room costs are a major concern to many. “No worries”, Saadi reminds visitors, “Our hotel room consolidators are in negotiations with several properties at all price points. An announcement of hotels offering show discounted rates will be released in May of 2015.” Nightly low rates of $120 to $140 are being discussed for some properties within blocks of the convention center during the show.

More budget-minded alternatives are in neighboring New Jersey with lowest May 2014 nightly rates between $71 and $106 around Newark Liberty Airport and from $115 to $139 further north at hotels on Tonnelle Avenue. Both areas are rail and bus hubs providing easy access to the city.

Food options in greater New York range the gamut from 99 cent pizza slices to haute cuisine. Not to be overlooked are the plentiful food carts and neighborhood haunts that the natives patronize daily. A featured article explores spicy to mild options that everyone can afford.

A very comprehensive listing of sites not to be missed with their current admission prices is included. Quite a few offer senior, youth, AAA and AARP discounts. Don’t overlook all the free things one can see and do as well.
