    The Jacob K. Javits Center is home to many popular North American trade shows. One of the biggest trade shows is the New York International Auto Show and is a "MUST SEE" if you are visiting NYC around mid April (double check the event calendar online).

    The Jacob K. Javits Convention Center is a main convention center in New York City. Disability access is available with lots of walk to get from one point to another point.

    Beautiful, modern convention center in the heart of midtown, and on the water. Great access to restaurants, hotels and the Lincoln Tunnel. Ample meeting space for any size event imaginable.

    Hate this place. Desolate neighborhood and miserable 70s architecture. Only reason to go is if you are really excited about a trade show / exhibit. No man's land in Manhattan. Wish they would knock it down and build condos.

    The ultimate convention center for expos and conferences. Enjoyed New York Times Travel convention at this expansive and modern venue.

    It's just your average convention center, nothing special. I used to go here for the annual comicbook convention when I was younger and still into comics.

    It's a convention center - you're only coming here if you have to. If you come for any other reason...you need to start re-evaluating you're travel itinerary.

    "The" place for conventions and trade shows, some private and others open to the public. If you are hungry while here, you are better off eating elsewhere, as the food tends to be mediocre. Although walkable from the Times Square area, there are buses that go directly to Javits. The facility is large, so wear your walking shoes.
