Homework for Vogue Knitting Live

I'm so excited that I'm able to go to NYC Jan 22-24 for Vogue Knitting Live!!  I'm taking Nicky Epstein's class on block by block knitting, and trying to finish up my "homework" before I go!  This will be an awesome trip to see the celebrities of the knitting world, and it's also my 1st trip to NY!!!   Any advice on what I NEED to see or do while I'm there?
