So I'm going to be in New York City this Saturday and Sunday before I leave for my year of studying abroad, and my uncle (with whom I'll be staying in Manhatten) told me to bring money to buy "stuff need to buy, like cameras, ipods, ibook accessories; and must have clothes that you don't need like cool shoes". Now, I must say that I'm a bit of a stranger to shopping in a city like NY, so, my question is... What should I buy in New York? I know there's quite a lot of stores there, so what's cool and what do you recommend? For the purposes of these recommendations, lets keep the cost of any particular item below $500, shall we? Thanks!
