There's no doubt in my mind I could -afford- it with some budgeting, but the travel arrangements are the tricky part. Shan can't do long roadtrips, and I can't drive. It'd be best if I could fly there, and then hook up with some friends to carpool from the hotel TO the con or something, since I think taking taxis to and fro would probably break the budget (or make it pretty tight).
There's NJ Transit busses that drops off right in front of the new venue and multiple nice hotels within a block or two of same.
If you fly into JFK you can take the Air Train to Jamaica Station, then get on the uptown E train to go to the Port Authority Transit Hub, one stop after Penn Station. The 320 bus from the PATH drops off directly in front of the venue.
If you fly into Newark you can take the the NJT one stop north from the airport station to Newark Penn Station, then catch bus 78 which also drops off right in front of the venue.
