New York - New York

Regional Community

We are in New York City, and like the city we’re part of, we do tend to think that we’re the center of everything. Despite what you may have heard, however, New Yorkers tend to be very nice people. We are happy to help anyone! Because space is tight in the New York area, we don’t have our own regional burn, so many New York Burners travel to p0rtalBurn (In Almond, NY), Cosmic (near Ithaca), Playa Del Fuego (in Delaware), NECTR (in Conneticut), and Firefly (in Vermont). to get their playa fix throughout the year, and connect with other New York and East Coast burners. We work closely with other nearby Regionals to create some great events. In and around the city, there are always a plethora of outings, collaborative art projects, talks, movies, fund-raisers, celebrations, art events, and parties going on. The best way to find out about as much as possible is to subscribe to the announcement list (low volume, strictly announcements) and the discussion list (moderate volume). And also check for the latest updates.

There are so many people in and around NYC that know of or have been to the desert. On the playa, New Yorkers are everywhere! There are now literally dozens of theme camps and thousands of people from NYC, with great new camps popping up all the time!
