Would New Yorkers say that generally everything they have ever needed they have been able to find in the city? I remember an episode of SATC where Miranda left a date because her date said he hadn't left the city in 7 years (?).

Anybody know of cheap hotels to stay at? I'd prefer not to stay in a hostel.

Anything helps!

i take it you mean neighborhoods.
because i never had nice neighbors in Brooklyn.


Brooklyn Heights

Dumbo

people seem to like Williamsburg, it is ok
east williamsburg, because west.....

basically the closer you are to the east river, the better.

I know this might sound weird but I was thinking about it today, how I wish someone had told me before going to NY... the sugar in US doesn´t sweeten like the sugar in Latin America or Europe. I usually drink expressos with two sugar packets, in USA I had to use up to 6 packets to get the same taste! the end result was the same but the calories a lot more. Weird, I know LOL but if I ever travel again to the States I´m bringing my own packets

Were you using regular granulated white sugar or the brown sugar crystals (demarara or as I often see it called, "sugar in the raw")? I find the later to be sweeter and if I'm not mistaken, it's less processed and probably better for you.
