Streams: The main events will be streamed with our very own streaming setup at https://twitch.tv/aonstreams and https://twitch.tv/gengame! As well as http://twitch.tv/mariokartboards
Airbnb: For the best housing experience at Exalt, we recommend booking Airbnbs with your fellow attendees! Airbnbs tend to be the better value options for this area, especially if you have a larger group to stay with. Be sure to check routes before booking. (If you are staying near the Long Island Rail Road (LIRR), you can take that to Deer Park and uber, drive, or walk over.)
Hotels: Hotels tend to more expensive unless you split it among others. But, there are a few hotels around the area.
Transit Info: We recommend flying into LaGuardia Aiport, since it is the closest airport to the trains and venue.
If you are travelling from NYC, you can take the LIRR (http://lirr42.mta.info/stationInfo.php?id=72) to Deer Park. You can catch this from major train stations such as Grand Central Terminal (89 E 42nd St, New York, NY 1001), Penn Station (7th & 8th Avenues, between 31st & 33rd Streets New York, NY 10001), Long Island City (Borden Avenue and Second Street Long Island City, Queens, New York), Hunterspoint Avenue (49th Avenue between 21st Street and Skillman Avenue, Long Island City, Queens, New York), Hicksville (Newbridge Road & West Barclay Street, Hicksville, NY).
We recommend staying at places close to these train stations as they offer easier access to the venue (if you can’t find a place that’s right next to the venue/don’t want to).
DO NOT take regular train stations such as 1, 2, A, E, F, M. Make sure you’re taking the LIRR. Just ask the person at the front desk you want to purchase a ticket to Deer Park.
We hope to see you there!
