  • Sure. Take what you can afford to spend. Window shopping in NYC is just as fun as buying things :)

  • NY is very expensive.

    The state decided to temporarily suspend the state sales tax exemption for clothing and footwear costing under $110. Luckily the state decided to wait until after back-to-school shopping season. The exemption is suspended from October 1, 2010 through March 31, 2011. After that it will be reinstated in two stages. From April 1, 2011 through March 31, 2012, the exemption will apply for clothing and footwear costing under $55. On April 1, 2010, the full exemption will be reinstated to cover clothing and footwear costing under $110. Local governments have the option of following these rules or continuing with their own clothing exemptions as usual.

    Go to NJ. We have what NY has but there is no sales tax on clothes. Short Hills mall is just like NYC.

  • For NYC, the experience is 99% of the fun! As for actually spending, the price ranges are all across the board for shopping and dining. Have fun!
