If you’ve been to New York Comic-Con before, you know how agonizing it is to get in line for wristbands at the crack of dawn in order to get into the Main Stage panels. Although this all part of the comic con experience, as the convention gains popularity, they have expanded panels to additional locations to accommodate more fans.
This year, NYCC will hold panels across all four days at the Hammerstein Ballroom. Now, I know what you’re thinking. Hammerstein is a long, uphill 15-minute walk from the Javits Center, one that you don’t want to take multiple times a day. If you want to hatch some of your Pokemon GO eggs, feel free to get some exercise in! But if not, have no fear, now that the 7 train has finished construction, you are now only a few short subway stops away from exclusive clips and seeing some of your favorite stars in the flesh.
