Per Michael Piasecki, our host, The Towers option is not available, unfortunately (3/20/2014). Here are alternative suggestions from Michael:

W Hotel New York which is our hotel in which we reserved blocks of rooms.

There is also a Days Inn (this is not in Harlem - it is on Broadway on the Upper West Side - subway Line 1)
215 West 94th Street, New York, NY

and then the Aloft Harlem (15-20 minutesÂ’ walk)

In my personal experience, there are lots of Airbnb options in NYC. See

Also see HIC'2014 lodging options:

LGA is the closest airport to fly into.

Meeting location

The workshop will be held at CCNY, at the same location as HIC'2014 . HIC'2014 web site has a lot of helpful info: .
