  • NYC Shopping :)

    Quick run down of the gadgets I bought out here, one thing that slightly pisses me off is that I never got anything for my camera. But I did get some cool bits and bobs.

    1. Loads of FDNY T-Shirts and Goodies from the FDNY Museum. I love Rescue Me and more importantley the money goes to the widows and children. I also stopped by ladder 8 and ladder 23 (who lost an entire crew) and bought some shirts.
    2. My Archos 504 is a year old. It gets used on a daily basis either on the train or plane. Its time for that to go into retirement. I replaced it with this puppy. http://www.archos.com/products/video...global&lang=en
    3. I have some real nice Shure headphones. I hate for people to hear what i am listening to, and by the same token I dont like to listen to anything else other than the audio I am playing. I NEVER SCRIMP ON HEADPHONES. Whilst browsing around the Apple Store on 5th Avenue I tried these noise cancelling head phones. I have had NC phones before but nothing compares to these. Switch them on and its like going deaf. http://www.bose.com/controller?event...adphones_index
    4. Why are jeans only 15 a pair in the US? I got 5 pairs of Levis.
    5. Shopping at GAP (and this is one for us brits) is like shopping at Matalan. I also bought another bag to put this gear in
    6. ToyRus, this was cool. My son wanted some specific StarWars gear. $60 dollars bought me a bag full of stuff, I mean alot of gear. What was really cool was that the Security Guard let me take a space ship down to the Earth cam outside TGI's. I was able to show the boy the toy and he confirmed that it was the right one. check it out... http://www.earthcam.com/usa/newyork/timessquare/
    7. Trainers (Sneakers) got 4 pairs for the price of 2 in the UK. again, very cheap.
    8. Now this thing I have not actually picked up yet, and I am still wondering if I should get it. Its a calf and foot massage machine. i have serious back issues ( I need my spine fused) which really kills my legs and feet. Its a big box, i guess i could check it in. http://www.brookstone.com/store/prod...=Result*R1C1*T

    I get to come to NYC once every 3 months now. And I have been told I need to go to Miami next month

    Forgot. No.9 for my hunting - http://www.target.com/gp/detail.html...sin=B0001WAQ42

    Hah, that's funny. The last place I'd consider to go shopping is NYC, and I live about 120 miles away

    I guess it's good for you though since you get more for your money since it's worth quite a bit more than ours.

        You are lucky to be able to get deals like that because of your currency. For us everything is expensive as ever, with the Northeast being one of the most expensive parts of the country for everything from gas to housing.

          I went out for a drive today and was surprised they were selling gasoline for $2.799 near the entrance to the Holland Tunnel (in New Jersey, but in sight of the Manhattan skyline). That's actually pretty competitive with the rest of the country.

          And it's about .38 per liter if you do the math. How does that compare?

              New Jersey has a tax difference that results in NJ's Gas being about 20 cents cheaper than in NY. My dad works in Jersey and doesn't fill up anywhere but.

              Glad to see you're enjoying NYC. It's one hell of a town.
