A bid for the 1941 Worldcon about which we know little other than that it lost to Denver in 1941. See 1941 Worldcon Site Selection.

It should be made clear that this was in no way an organized bid. A Worldcon was a couple hundred people, max, and did not require much preparation or an exotic venue, so it was perfectly practical to bid first and get a site afterwards.

The New York in 1941 bidders planned to hold the convention in Newark. They felt that Denver was too far away and after losing, decided to hold their convention anyway. There was much feuding in the fan press, which ended only after Ray Palmer, SF editor for Ziff Davis threw his support behind Denver.
