Yeah 400 is good by the looks.

@blackham nice one man gonna bookmark that and keep an eye on it. @brodie good looking out, I've never considered or actually knew anything about multi city deal deals, looks like theres a few bargains doing it.

You can also do New York (or a fair few other American / Canadian places) on Icelandair with a free stopover in Iceland for up to 7 days for good prices (less than £400 in jan for example), always wanted to do it.

Be there for 4 days in December.
Any recommendations? - book stores, clothing, proper NY pizza, other places to eat? (Im big on American breakfasts).
Not gonna take a change of clothes, so places for cheap basics would be good also.

Pies n Thighs is a must too (LES and Williamsburg)

For clothing, I'd be going to Nepenthes, Gentry, Barney's, Bergdorf Goodman, Carson St. Clothiers, If, Odin and the obligatory visit to Supreme. Sure there's tons more but those are the ones that I liked the most when I've been in the past and a couple I'd like to go to in the future.

Oh yeah, DSM too.

For basics you're a few minutes walk away from the Uniqlo flagship on 5th Ave.

As Ulster mentions, J Crew is also much better value over there

Booked flights for next May. Best place to book the usual tourist tickets? Never been before so we'll be doing all the usual stuff.

If you are definitely gonna do all the big stuff, get the CityPASS, but if you're gonna pick and choose, just get indiviual tickets (it doesn't include queue jump for ESB for example (which is a must if you ask me))

Katz's Deli…touristy yes, but that pastrami sandwich is the best I've ever had. Def worth a go if it's midweek and you don't have to queue for that long.
