Thursday June 22nd, 2017 – Opening Reception
Fordham University Lincoln Center Campus

The welcome reception will be hosted at Fordham University’s Lincoln Center campus located in the heart of Manhattan. Broadway is one block to the east, Central Park not much farther away, and the world renowned Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, Metropolitan Opera, and New York City Ballet are quite literally next door neighbors. Nearly every great thing you can imagine about being in New York is right at your doorstep: museums, restaurants, music, all of it. Fordham University’s 8-acre Lincoln Center campus spans two city blocks, and has a beautiful landscaped plaza where you can find a respite from the bustle of the city without ever having to leave it.

Located in the heart of Times Square and the Broadway theater district, The Marriott Marquis is one of the premier hotels in Times Square. If you have ever welcomed the New Year in New York City (live or on television), then you have in some way already been to the New York Marriott Marquis. The hotel is famous for its high-tech elevators and atrium lobby rising 45 stories to "The View", New York's only rooftop revolving restaurant and lounge. The awards dinner will start with a reception at the Broadway Lounge which offers a picturesque vista overlooking Times Square and access to the new outdoor lounge with views of the famous New Year’s Eve ball drop. The Awards Dinner will take place in the hotel’s spectacular Westside ballroom. Following the dinner, Hank Lane — New York Magazine’s “Best Party Pop Band” — will bring high-energy, live music from some of New York’s most talented musicians. Delicious food, reconnecting with old friends, making new friends, and great music in the most electric spot on Earth — Times Square — ensure that this will be a NYC night to remember.
