There are too many places to go and do in NYC! Maybe you could be more specific in what you really will like to do!

Anyway I hope you have fun and welcome to NYC. :)

Just one thing I would not buy at Canal Street and that's TEE-SHIRTs.. For them, you are better off paying up and get it at the stands by the Central Park..You will get to keep them for much longer...;)

HipHop / Reggae/Soca

But a small club, or a large club?

I've suggested it before, but bOb on Eldridge Street is a great small bar for hip-hop.

Here's a Citysearch link that will allow you to narrow down your interests by clicking the "Refine Your Search" buttons on the left-hand side of the screen:

It sounds like you'd also do well to pick up a guide to NYC while you're still in Toronto. They'll have many guides geared towards younger people that will allow you to specialize your trip a bit more, not to mention compile addresses and maps for you.

You've still got some time before you get here, so pick up a guidebook and get a general idea of what you want to see. Name a few clubs, and ask for a general opinion about them. Once you let us know what you're looking for, we'll be able to help more.

How far is to travel from Manhattan to Brooklyn?

It depends on what part of Brooklyn you're going to. Anywhere from 5 minutes to an hour.

Hey everyone,

Can you believe I have never really ever chatted before. I guess I've never really seen the need, except now. I am thinking of moving to New York for two years beginning next year, and I'm not sure. I mean I see the movies and the programmes, but I'd like some REAL insight into the city. Would a Joburg (Johannesburg, South Africa) girl make ON HER OWN it in a big city like NY? :confused:
