The many people who booked rooms there knew it as the dirty decaying building where they got bedbugs that one time. Throughout history it was known as the The Statler Hilton, The New York Statler, and the New York Penta. But to mischievous hackers every two years in New York City, it was simply known as home. This talk will be a dissection of HOPE's former abode as its strange history is examined. Secrets that never saw the light of day until now will be revealed and hacker stories that live in the hard drive of our minds will be shared. Attendees can also come up to the mic and share their stories, grievances, fairy tales, myths, epic yarns, and shocking truths about their own Hotel Penn memories committed to hacker record.
