ON THE METROPOLITAN NEW YORK NUMISMATIC CONVENTION
George Cuhaj writes:
I do not know how many other New York Numismatic Club members read The E-Sylum, however the convention Alan Weinberg wrote about is the Metropolitan New York Numismatic Convention, which has nothing to do with the New York Numismatic Club, although as with many things New York, there are interlocking members. As for the later days of the NYNC, when the Barbazon Hotel was converted into Luxury Condos the Metropolitan NYNC was the opening event at the then recently-opened Vista International Hotel at the World Trade Center. It ran there until the 1993 WTC bombing, which occurred in the parking garage located directly UNDER the ballroom which would have been the bourse one week later... That event effectively killed the show.
