Insider Suggestions for Your #NIIC NYC visit


The New York Immigration Coalition is looking forward to welcoming participants like you to the 2015 National Immigrant Integration Conference. To make the most of your visit to the Big Apple, we asked our staff for insider tips on things to see and places to eat outside the Marriott. We've listed most of them below (We know you won't have time to do them all). Here's a printable two-pager checklist to carry with you. Let us know if you have any feedback or further suggestions by commenting below.
