NY ComicCon Is Around The Corner - Here Are 10 Things You Need To Do To Prepare

For the first time since 2019, New York Comic Con is back to being live and in person. 

The Reedpop-produced fan convention which celebrates all things comics will return to the Jacob Javits Center on Thursday, October 7, 2021, and will run until Sunday, October 10.

The Javits Center is taking all necessary precautions to ensure your safety during the COVID-19 pandemic.

But attending NYCC involves more than just showing up at the Javits. To help you prepare for this event, we’ve come up with this list to help you make your experience the best one yet.

As of right now, flights are still going in and out of the greater New York City area. You’ll save a lot of money if you fly into Newark Airport (EWR) instead of JFK or LGA.

October in NYC is usually arond 60 degrees but it’s also very humid at times. If you do plan to go, dress in layers, so you can put on and remove sweaters as necessary.

You’re going to be walking a lot. The Javits Center is almost one million square feet. As much as you might want to wear those cute heels, dont. Your feet will thank you.

Wear Comfortable Shoes

While Manhattan is no longer the “concrete jungle” it was once was back in the 1970s, it’s still a big city. It’s very easy to get lost.

Keep a Friend or a Family Member Apprised Of What You're Doing
