Thanks! I tried looking on the PATH website but it wasn't much help without knowing which stop you want.
I'll probably go into the wee hours.

I love that the guy living in Sweden knows the stop to get off at & we don't.

Remember how he couldn't stop his leg?

I think I'm about to book a hotel room. I want a hotel close to the PATH station, and since I'm not made of money, I can't afford a Jersey City room, so I'm looking at Newark. I found a decent hotel that's about a half-mile walk from Penn Station. What's the neighborhood around there like? Is it safe to walk around that part of Newark in the middle of the night?

http://www.hollandmotorlodge.com/ is a cheap hotel not a million miles from the venue and I and a few other FOT will be walking back that way, or you can crash on my couch.

Thanks for the info on that, although that hotel is still a bit more than I'd like to spend. I'm from Ohio so I'm sure I'll spend most of the trip experiencing sticker shock. The hotels around Newark are more in my price range but I don't want to stay there if I'll be unsafe walking from Penn Station to the hotel.

Or I could just drive from the hotel to the Iron Monkey and hope I'll be able to find parking.

Why don't you just stay at Jason's, MoS?

I just feel weird about imposing on a stranger. Just a personal quirk, I guess.

I met Cory Booker and he referred to it as an "urban Mecca".

If all goes well traffic-wise, I should be arriving in Jersey City in the early afternoon (I'm trying to time my arrival so I don't hit rush hour), which will mean I'll need to kill several hours before the Gathering. What would the locals recommend as a fun way to kill a few hours in the area? Are there any cool book/record stores nearby?

But he invited you.  And he's only a nonvirtual stranger.

Anyone traveling from/through lower Manhattan?  I'll probably be taking the PATH from the World Trade Center.  It would be nice to show up not completely alone.

That's how you'll die (probably) get used to it, Andrew.

Change of plans.  I think I'll be spending my Tuesday night (and all nights from now on) softly crying myself to sleep.  Thanks, Fredericks!
