Book a flight to either LaGuardia or JFK International Airports. From there, rely on New York City’s excellent public transportation system (subways, cabs, rideshares, etc.) to get to Central Park. Don’t bother trying to drive yourself.
New York City has countless lodging opportunities from budget to upscale. Because it’s more expensive in Manhattan, your best bet is to look for a hotel, hostel or Airbnb outside of the borough. The closer the better, but you benefit from having NYC’s excellent public transportation system no matter where you stay.
This year's theme is "See Beyond.” OZY Fest wants you to be able to see more, be more and do more. So, do your best to explore, get out of your comfort zone and go into the festival with an open mind.
OZY Fest gives away free tickets each year to students at low-income schools.
