    Some nifty recommendations from yours truly. Please note that the following is my own research and not officially endorsed by OnePlus as part of the NYC launch event.

    Accommodation
    The NYC launch is located near the Manhattan Bridge and East River, in the Lower East Side. Here some reputable options 20 minutes or less walking distance from the launch venue.

    Transportation
    In NYC, it's very easy to get around, with the preferred option being the subway which runs 24/7. As with any big city, please stay safe, especially if you’re out late after launch.
    • Subway: You can take the F Train to East Broadway (Rutgers St./Madison St. exit). More detailed directions here.
    • Bus: Route M22, get off at Madison St/Montgomery St. Then about a 5-minute walk to the venue.
    • Taxi ($$$) or Uber ($) or Lyft ($) : This is more expensive than the subway, but it's likely your quickest bet unless it’s rush hour (7 to 9 AM and from 4 to 6 PM). This is also preferred if it's late at night since some routes may run less frequently.

    Eats
    We will have refreshments inside the venue, but maybe you’ll want to grab a bite to eat before or after. Here are just some options for a quick breakfast or lunch (<20 min walk or <5 min by car). All of these should be open by 8AM. Keep in mind some places may be cash or card only.
    New York has thousands of wonderful food options, so enjoy. Yelp is a great app to help you locate some of the most popular eateries in your vicinity.

    Hey everyone,

    I've been noticing a lot of doubts regarding the takeaways from our launch in New Delhi.

    As part of our launch package, attendees will be receiving OnePlus merchandise, including the Bullets Wireless Earphones. Also, note that one ticket will grant entry to one person only.

    You can find more details regarding the launch here: www.oneplus.in/6t/launch. Ticket sales go live at 10 AM on the 17th of October. See you there!
