  1. It's horrible this kind of stories of human trafficking ... I checked with my hotel and they received a formation to identify this practice. So I'll sleep in peace. I booked my hotel with and, phone 917-224-1231. I was lucky last year, they upgraded me to the HILTON HOTEL 2 minutes from the stadium! They offer Luxury Lodging and affordable accommodations for ALL EVENTS.
