Sorry for continuing this thread here, but I've only got one message for the group on this...
IIRC, they put a bid in to try and host the global BSDCON around 2005 -- and ran into a lot of the budgeting / cost issues that people mentioned before.
The ended up doing a handful of smaller NYCBSDCONs, and located many at Columbia University.
All that being said -- if you go through their email archives you can find a lot of valuable info on what worked, didn't, costs, etc.
Their community is full of really great people, and I'm sure they'd be happy to answer your questions and offer advice if you track down the right people.

Hi folks! I created the following group to help us coordinate efforts to bring PyCon to New York City for 2016 and 2017. Stay tuned! We are going to make this happen.
