Housing Options for the NY Eisteddfod Festival.

To main Eisteddfod-NY page ... To main Folk Music Society Page

Please contact these sites directly. The festival has no formal arrangement with any of them.

Four are standard motels, and we think have parking for your car.  Most are near public transportation to the festival, either by bus or subway.  These motels offer the most reasonable prices we could find near the festival. Prices, for double rooms per night, are subject to change. We presume taxes are extra.

If you want to explore really cheap, but respectable, housing, check out the following hostels.

We have not explored any of them, so you are on your own. But they look decent. None are in Queens.
