The North East Tolkien Society, formerly known as the New York Tolkien Society, and also known as Heren Istarion, is/was the largest American Smial of The Tolkien Society. The main force behind Heren Istarion are co-chairs Anthony Burdge and his wife Jessica Burke. It is semi-dormant since 2009 due to hardship encountered by the co-chairs due to the great recession[1].

History

The smial is located on Staten Island, New York. They published its own calendars in 2008, 2009 and 2010. The 2011 Heren Istarion calendar was available for pre-order but is unclear whether it was eventually released.

Aside from Heren Istarion New York City has a Meetup.com group: NYC Area Friends of J.R.R. Tolkien & Fantasy, that appears to be active as it meets monthly.
