Cheers noted, think I'll do that and look for flyers in record shops (do you know any good ones?). Tried to google gigs there but Time out is shit and slow, and couldn't find another decent one.

I have been trying to google for gigs too without much success...found some big name folk but not much else. I have now applied for my passport...I need to now book Statue of Liberty tickets and choose a Broadway show.

Check out the city pass, it gets you free access to lots of tourist attractions, MoMA, etc

Its hardly free access when you have to buy the City Pass in the first place is it. You are able to queue jumo with it tho so good from that point of view.

I had a great time out there, highlights were the circleline boat trip round the island, did it on the first day and the guy doing the commentary was excellent, after that we knew every landmark and it's history. Other highlight was Chinatown and little Italy. Unfortunately I didn't get time to do Coney Island or Harlem

No No No. Dont pack loads of warm clothes, leave loads of space in your suitcase and buy loads of lovely new stuff over there cheap as chips if you know the right places.

Hmm, I'm trying to hunt down Christmas time flights. It's not cheap is it?
You can usually bag a cheapish one if you're really flexible as to flight times and airports but you've got to get in quick. When we were looking at November flights, prices would go from £360 to £1,200 on the same day!

I think I'm packed , camera is on charge and got my dollars. Rate was $1.50 to £1.

A big thank you to 1927 for advice about accomodation and for PM about the neighbourhood. Now I just need to get out of bed at 5.30am...luckily I'm flying from B'ham and the check is one hour before though I'm aiming to be at airport by 7.30am with flight leaving 9am.

WOO HOO...:D:cool:
