Javits Center NYC

The Jacob K. Javits Convention Center, commonly known as the Javits Center, is a large convention center on Eleventh Avenue between 34th Street and 38th Street in Hell’s Kitchen, Manhattan, New York City. The 1.6-million-square-foot building —triple the size of the Coliseum, New York’s former exposition facility—was designed to house the world’s largest exhibition hall. Of course, Forte Models and our New York team are often found working the conventions at the impressive Javits Center. Allow us to introduce you to Javits Center NYC.

First of all, where else in the world can you can you find 760,000 square feet of meeting space, bespoke services, and top-of-the-line amenities—all under one giant 7-acre green roof? Whether it’s a product launch or a movie premiere, attending an event at the Javits Center is itself an event. Without a doubt, the Javits Center is the crown jewel of the pulsating, resurgent new West Side neighborhood—now transformed with the Hudson River Park, Hudson Yards and the recently expanded section of the High Line. In addition, thanks to the new 7 Subway line extension across the street, all the excitement is closer than you ever imagined.

Things To Do By The Javits Center

Next up, we have taken the liberty of providing you some options of things to do in close proximity to the Javits Center. Check it out…

  • Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum
Pier 86, Twelfth Ave. at 46th St.
Manhattan, NY 10036

Have you ever wanted to see a fighter jet or space shuttle up close? How about poking around the inside of a guided missile submarine or examining the supersonic Concorde? You can do all these and more aboard the USS Intrepid, a decommissioned aircraft carrier turned supercool museum. The attraction features hands-on educational exhibits that kids and adults will love.

  • Gotham West Market
600 Eleventh Ave.
Manhattan, NY 10036

Gotham West Market is an upscale food hall for the 21st century, complete with house-made charcuterie, ramen, ceviche, tamales, fancy cocktails, sushi burritos, ice cream and—useful for working off some of those indulgences—a bike shop where you can rent a cycle.

  • Hell’s Kitchen Flea Market
29 W. 25th St.
New York, NY 10010A collector’s paradise, a haggler’s dream, a stylist’s favorite place to spend the morning—people’s notions of what makes Hell’s Kitchen Flea Market a destination are multifarious. Its 100-plus vendors sell the likes of vintage threads, new-to-you comic books, freshly made Amish jam, hand-me-down knickknacks and beautiful baubles. It’s open year-round, rain or shine—but only on weekends.
  • The High Line
Gansevoort Street to West 30th Street
Manhattan, NY 10011

The High Line is an old elevated railway that’s been creatively transformed into a park. Architecture buffs enjoy the front-row seat to Manhattan’s skyline, historians appreciate the way the park has incorporated its industrial past (for example, by leaving some train tracks visible) and environmentalists delight in the native flora. Instagrammers, meanwhile, love it all.

Covid 19

Undoubtedly, show producers will be enhancing the operational guidelines due to Covid 19. Also, you can be sure the show producers will have taken all the necessary precautions to receive a crowd of this size. Finally, the hotels and resorts will be making the same arrangements to provide safe environments for the attendees. For instance, special social distancing guidelines and additional cleaning crews will be prevalent.
