The head of the Social Science Reference Section here at New York
University has compiled this list of reasonably-priced hotels in New
York City. I am not personally endorsing any of these hotels since I
have only staid in two of the many listed. You should contact your
travel agent for more information. If you have any questions,
though, I will be happy to at least try to answer them for you!

Hope to see lots of you in New York!
