Expanding possibilities for people with vision loss

On Location in Brooklyn

AFB is thrilled to welcome 2014 Leadership Conference attendees to NYC, our home for nearly 100 years. We are equally thrilled with our meeting location--the fabulous New York Marriott at the Brooklyn Bridge, which is just minutes from Manhattan by subway or an eye-opening walk across the world-famous Brooklyn Bridge.

But you don't have to leave Brooklyn to see the best that New York has to offer. No matter your interests, from sporting events to museums and fine dining, Brooklyn has it all. There's a reason why Food and Wine magazine named Brooklyn one of the top ten best places to eat, drink, and shop. And why GQ named it the coolest spot on the planet. Explore Brooklyn and discover its many hidden gems for yourself!
