What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?

Parking is slim. We would not recommend driving. You can take the E/G/M/7 to Court Square or the E/F/M/R to Queens Plaza. It is about a 15 minute walk over to our location from either station.

How can I contact the organizer with any questions?

Feel free to email info@nydesigns.org with any questions.

What's the refund policy?

Space is very limited so our refund policy is strict. Full refund will only be granted if request is made 48 hours in advance. Email info@nydesigns.org to request a refund.
