    Default Going to New York. Any must see places?

    Hey guys,

    Pretty excited about a trip to New York this week. Just wondered if there are any places I should go check out? Record stores, places of musical interest etc.

    Plus anything I could buy out there which would be good for the money. I know I'm buying a Zune HD 64gb because I have been after one for a while, so I will probably just get that from a Bestbuy. Maybe some in ear monitors. Really don't know.

    Just don't want to come back and feel like I have missed out on seeing some places.

    Thanks guys,
    Tobes

    Rock and Soul is a great spot for music and equipment....462, 7th ave. in midtown. DON'T buy any electronics at any of those "touristy" looking spots with all the shiny new stuff all over the windows....they are such a rip off. As far as chill spots, the village has something for everyone and its all in walking distance. Enjoy!!!

    Thanks for the reply! Yeah small private shops are what I'm more after. Family want to do the whole site seeing route but I'm just taking a load of cash and want to find the hidden places

    I hear there's a big metal lady on an island! Totally go there!

    Also, Times Square at 3 am is the most surreal experience. Try that. You never imagine that a place can be so lively at all hours! Find a little pizza place just off there. The serve the biggest pizzas I've ever seen.

    Bottom line, I guess, is that the entire city is amazing.

    I love that idea. Just somehow got to convince the others that we should do this. Only staying 4 nights so they might to "sleep to get a early start the next day". Pffft

    Both of these favoured in google maps. BH photovideo looks amazing. It seems like my perfect store.

    I can only assume this is the subway or something and I will find some action lol. Saying that maybe the English accent might get me some. Highly doubtful but hey would be a nice bonus

    Sorry for the bump. Just wanted to know if it's possible to get a prepaid data only sim or something like that while I'm out there. I know it's only 4 days but I wouldn't mind having net access while I'm about for google maps. My phones a Nexus One which I bought direct from google so it's on the same frequency so that shouldn't be a problem.
