I have changed the primary location to this one, thanks to the kind invite from Billy. Please rsvp to him if you want to make it there. For those who wish to gamble on standby tickets at the original venue, I will leave its info in the bottom of the description.
Here is the info from Billy for the new venue.
"If you cannot get in to CUNY Graduate Center, you are welcome, no cost or obligation to: Henry George School of Social Science will stream the webcast and host a discussion afterwards. Venue: NYC Seminar and Conference Center
71 West 23rd Street at 6th Avenue, Suite 515
NYC, NY, 10010
RSVP required to Billy Fitzgerald at [masked]."
Update, its going to be streamed live.
The tickets are gone, students and staff got first picks before they opened to the public. However, I would expect there to be a standby line for the truly enthusiastic. No promises though, just a heads up in case you want to give it a try.
It is free, other than the waiting in line and hoping for the best.
Original venue info, I assume standby tickets will be available, but very hard to get.
