    Thank our partner CTN (Corporate Tax Network) for their beautiful event space (see below for picture), which is the 60th floor of Empire State Building. Plenty of room for everyone.

    • Regular tickets for non-NYEBN members and walk-in rate - $30/person 



    Here are a few alternative methods you can pay if using PayPal here is challenging to you:

    • Get tickets at Eventbrite
    • We accept credit card payment. Contact Miriam Kapla at [masked] or [masked] to process your payment



    We'll be serving Chinese & Italian food. Open bar (beer & other beverages). Please note, This is a general business event. Doesn't matter if you're tech or non-tech. If you're an entrepreneur, a business professional, or a student interested in learning entrepreneurship, you're welcome!

    "My mission is to bring you a piece of heaven in a smal bite to every event.
    My cupcakes are rich, fluffy, delicate bites of melt-in-your-mouth goodness!
    With many flavors ranging from the simple to awe-inspiring, along with seasonal

    Andrew always does a great job of bringing people together!

  • Marco A Soriano +1

    music and more alcohol.

  • Tanya Marks +1

    I thought the party was just OK. In the future I'd like to see someone implement some type of "games" or conversation starters so that people can get into the networking groove. I'm pretty decent at networking but oftentimes people need an icebreaker to get going.

  • Tom Jacoby

    Cool space on the 60th floor of the Empire State Building, good crowd, warm and loud, good to talk without loud music, good food. Happy Holidays Andrew and NYEBNers!

  • Demetrios Tzortzis

    Nice location, but room was stark, not Christmasy, no decoration to lift the spirit. Met some great people, but limited food and drink, ran out very quick.

  • Gene Panasenko

    Excellent event! Great job in organizing and conducting a great party!

  • Tom Lancia

    A well attended event with some pleasant and interesting people.
