Obama Coming to New York

Barack Obama’s first events in New York City since announcing his presidential run will be on March 9, according to one of the event organizers, Arthur Leopold.

The first is a pricey get-together (suggested contribution: $1000-$2300) at the Grand Hyatt from 6 to 8 p.m. The second is a less formal gathering of supporters at The Grand for only $100 a head.
