24 Hour Ballroom.
New York City is the city that never sleeps, and we know the FGC is guilty of that trait as well. So, why not take a stroll throughout midtown during the evening or even night, and find your way back to the venue for some casual sessions before calling it a night... or day?
Defend the North will have its doors open once again for 24 hours to fulfill that competitive itch and grind to get better at your craft. Don't miss out!
24 Hour Arcade.
Our passion wouldn't exist today if it wasn't for the arcade scene across New York City. XS Arcade, Broadway City, Fulton Arcade, Port Authority, Laser Tag and the ICONIC Chinatown Fair.
New York City was blessed with it's fair share of arcades, and what better way to honor this then to have our very own 24 hour arcade. The passion shall remain from our coin up days!
A... 24 Hour Diner!?
We as the FGC are now getting used to 24 hour ballroom, but 24 hour diners? Tick Tock Diner is a New York institution, dishing out delicious American-style comfort food! Treat yourself to a Monte Christo, or a Triple Decker Club.
And hey, sometimes we are lazy and there's nothing wrong with that when you are in the comfort of your own room. So give them a call and they'll be sure to send your meals directly to your room... yup, you heard right.
Defend the North has been fortunate to have countless cosplayers come to our events to showcase their affection, enthusiasm, and passion on our favourite fighting game characters. 2019 will be the biggest showcase yet of cosplayers throughout the Tri-State area, so don't be shy and take a picture with a big smile!
