It is genuinely awful. People are not exaggerating about lines and crowds. Most cons I go to I can accept the crowd, even trick myself into being okay with it (DragonCon), but not SDCC. The atmosphere just feels…suffocating and thick. The three years I went I always came home with an awful case of con-crud, though that admittedly might be due to having a lowered immune system due to poor con-diet.
However, if you don’t mind people, I will always recommend trying to get there at least once. The energy is pretty worth it.

I used to say that NYCC was *trying* to be SDCC, and while they don’t have all the outdoor stuff (It’s NYC in October - it’s probably gonna rain, whatreyagonnado), they’re sure getting there. Not sure if that’s good or not, because, you’re right, SDCC is endurance and exhaustion and work. I like the feeling of NYCC better than SDCC…but I’ve also got a lot of pride for the east coast and can’t stand the LA mentality. Sure do wish the Javit’s Center was bigger, though. I’m looking forward to being at NYCC this year - it’s been too long!
