They're all equally annoying to get out of. LaGuardia is the cheapest.

Newark usually has the cheaper airfare but then you need to get to the city. That's $60 for a cab (one way), or $15 for the NJ Transit train to Penn Station (one way), or $4-5 using buses and subway (one way - this will take a LOT longer). I've always just taken the NJ Transit.

JFK, you can take the airport train ($5 - rip off!) then take the subway. Probably take you 45-60 minutes to get to UWS.

LaGuardia - you can take the bus from the airport to UWS. $2.25. Takes about 45-60 minutes to get to Columbia University area (last stop). From there, use your bus transfer for the subway - or walk.

I think a cab one way from JFK or LaGuardia will be about $40-50 to UWS area. Depending on traffic.

I wouldn't worry about safety. I felt safer in NYC than any other city. I think it's statistically one of the safest big cities in the world nowadays. There's always a good amount of other people around.

I always try to get front row orch or front row loge. Nothing even close - tried the AMEX presale, the Peachogram presale, and the AMEX preferred.

I've always got BB or CC orch for AMEX presale...

Looks like I gotta wait for the general sale.

If it ain't frustrating to get tix, it ain't a Beacon run!

The BB<CC Orch are $500 Gold Package tickets right now. They won't be in the regular sale or presales.

Congrats to all who got tickets. I will keep trying but I see a ticket broker in my future. Hotels - we always stay at the "on the ave" hotel which is two blocks away between Broadway and Amsterdam. It is pricy but nice - rooms for St Pats weekend with two double beds running about $350 to $365 per night (tax and fees included). Will permit up to four in a room. Right across from a great 24 hour diner, a greasy burger and pizza joint named Nicks on Broadway, and also a very cool grocery store on Broadway. The Amsterdam Pub is on the same block on Amsterdam Ave and is a big hangout for concert goers before and after the shows. Playing non stop ABB on the sound system. Hope this helps.

This will depend on how willing you are to walk around the city. If money is a concern, I can recommend where I stayed last year. I stayed at a Holiday Inn Express on 57th St (Midtown Manhattan). It was probably a 15 minute walk to the Beacon. Like I said, if you are trying to save money.. You might want to consider this. I payed under $200/night. The room was comfortable and clean. And I felt completely safe walking around the area. Be it day or evening.

I flew in from out of town last year, so I was trying to save a bit on the hotel. Also, I really enjoyed having a walk to and from the beacon. My girlfriend and I walked several different routes and ran into unique shops and restaurants along the way. We stopped for cupcakes, cookies and food we couldn't otherwise enjoy!

There is also a subway station about 3 blocks away. We travelled via subway to avoid exorbitant taxi fees. Hope everything works out for you!

Even the sides? I've never paid $500 when I got tickets during presale and regular sale...
