The Electrifying Future of Cars at the New York Auto Show


The perennial favorite of the Javits Center, the New York Auto Show, returns April 15 to the 24th, 2022. The future of cars is on full display across several massive floors along with press conferences from Jeep, Hyundai, Kia, Chevrolet, Nissan, Chrysler, and more.

2022-NYIAS-POSTER-scaledThe Electric Vehicle Indoor Test Track lets visitors see the advancements coming to EVs and take a wide array of electric vehicles for a test spin. In the Exotics exhibit you can see supercars, hypercars and exclusive luxury vehicles from Bentley, Karma, Lamborghini, Porsche, and Rolls Royce. Ford’s indoor ride experience includes an immersive and exhilarating Mustang Mach-E experience designed to showcase the future-forward electric vehicle’s abilities and learn more about the embedded technology and connectivity built into every vehicle.

Fandom Comes Alive Again at New York Comic Con 2021


New York Comic Con
October 7-10
Javits Center

If it weren’t for comic books, I might have lived the mundane life of a college professor or some such. Or maybe not. But I do believe my start as an outlier was when I picked up my first comic book — it might have been a 1961 Turok, Son of Stone. Or maybe it was a Mystery In Space with the character Adam Strange. And then there was that Flash. Or maybe it was Showcase Comics featuring the red uniformed Flash — drawn by Carmine Infantino and maybe inked by Murphy Anderson.

Whatever it was, once I read them there was no turning back. My life had changed. At the time, comic book fans were fewer than they are today; in fact, enjoying them was kind of an underground act.
takeiNow being a comic book fan is nearly mainstreamed thanks to there being a source for the many tentpole superhero movies that are keeping the film industry alive. And these international comic cons have become the gathering point for the fans whether they be the movie or print versions.
Once again, New York Comic Con hits the city this October, fully coming to life in Javits Center from the 7th to the 10th — and there's none of the virtual this or that. But it’s somehow a bit more modest in its range of invited guests and event schedule. That's okay. It needed to get kick started and that’s what’s happening right now.
Where can the best in pop culture be experienced no matter what fandom you’re passionate about? Whether inspired by award-winning artists or Japanese anime creators, the answer can be found at Javits this weekend. If you are star-struck over your favorite TV and film idols, they can be seen and maybe even met at a photo op or signing.
Photo ops and select autographs are now set for featured guests such as Star Trek’s William Shatner, David Harbour (Stranger Things, Black Widow); George Takei (Star Trek); Hayden Christensen, (Star Wars Prequels, Jumper, Disney Obi-Wan Kenob); John Cena (The Suicide Squad, Fast 9, WWE Superstar); Jurnee Smollett (Lovecraft Country, Birds of Prey) and American rapper Pharoahe Monch. But that is only the top-line list. There are many more than that.
And that’s not all. There are industry panels, an artist alley and a huge exhibition hall of booths filled with swag and signings.
Best of all are the fans themselves -- costumed and ready for cosplay. Find all the Flashes, Spider-men and Wonder Women as they wander the Javits this weekend in their costumes and more.
