We'll be in New York from 7th Sep for 5 nights. I've now mostly recovered from the shock of having to pay $400 a night for very average accommodation for 3 adults - it seems true that this period is one of the most expensive of the year - and am looking at our itinerary.
I'd love to see Ave Q while we are in town. Will it be necessary to prebook for this show, or are we likely to get some discounted seats on arrival? We'd be pretty flexible with regard to the actual performance date.
We'll be staying at Eastgate Tower, which apparently is quite close to the UN. Should we anticipate any extraordinary issues with traffic, closures etc. in the area, given the Congress activity?
