"the NEXT evolution of anime conventions!"
The Hilton Rye Town is located in Rye Brook, NY, only 20
miles away from Manhattan. Situated near several major
highways and by rail through Metro-North, the Hilton is
accessible to travelers yet maintains the feel of a country
hideaway. We are within driving distance from all nearby
states. Come and join us at AnimeNEXT 2003!
