Mode of transportation has not yet been determined. Possibly bike,
possibly train, possibly bus. It feels strange not needing to buy plane
I should be there for all of the conference proper but not for DebCamp.
Take Lucky Star or Fung Wah. You give them $15 (which I think may even be round trip), get on at South Station, take the bus to NYC Chinatown, do your thing, then come back. Really cheap, relatively quick (4 hours?), and your bike won't burden you while you're in NYC.
I took Lucky Star in February and really enjoyed it. They even have decent wifi on the bus, though you should ask for the password beforehand (I had to guess it - it was something like luckystar then the bus number).
You lucky stiff! I have to go through this silly border control thing. mumbles something unintelligible
