I made this forum for a question I had, but for other to ask questions as well.

My question is:
For certain events, do people actually camp out? Or has NYCC banned that? I never really saw it happen last year, but I also was never really there at a time when I would see that kind of thing.

Feel free to ask other questions on here as well!

You can't camp out overnight. Period. Some people do line up at opening for a panel at 6 though.

Thanks for letting me know!

So, I'm from California. But, I have a love for roadtrips and a love for Naruto. I just heard about Kishimoto going to NYCC and tickets are already sold out. Is there any chance of me getting in any way? I'd be willing to staff the con if they're still taking people--I work at several others--and I'm also willing to sneak in.
San Diego Comic-Con is intense. Security is almost air-tight. How close is NYCC to that?
Really any help would be great.

Volunteers were selected ages ago. Checking into the con involves scanning your RFID chip, and you need to scan out again when you leave so one person=one badge. You ain't sneaking in.

Your best bet is, sadly, a scalper.

Also good luck finding a hotel that's less than $400 a night now.

I have a question as well, hope someone can help-- it's my first time going to NYCC this year, and I was just wondering what the temperature was like inside the convention center. I know the whole thing is inside, so does it get really hot? Or does the AC get blasted and does it run cold? Or is it generally comfortable?

Or eBay, which is an electronic scalping system, frankly.

It varies VERY widely depending on where you are. The showroom floor can get pretty hot, but the big open areas (Crystal Palace, et cetera) stay cool. There are even areas of the con outside if you need some time to cool off. The food truck area is great for that.

There's an off site event at an Apple store in NYC you could hit up instead. Start driving.
