Well - was a bit disappointed with my visit to New York. Grand Central station, although nice, is pretty small. Way smaller than they make it look on the telly. And Manhattan is small as well.
And the gadget shops are pants - many of them but very limited product ranges, and the prices weren't competitive, even with the great exchange rate.
And I couldn't even get much for the wife - better shoes/perfumes/clothes etc in Edinburgh.
And the nightlife was a bit sucky too - so all my preconceptions were dashed except one:
The Empire State Building - it is quite spectacular from the top. Old an dknackered inside - we queued for 2 hours in decrepit, dingy corridors - but absolutely worth it!
