I want to go to NY for two reasons: 1. To see the Color Purple on Broadway 2. For business reasons-trying to find apparel sources/manufacturers. I plan to in August sometime-so what are the best/safest/cheapest areas to stay for a week? Does anyone who works in the garment/apparel industry know of good guides to manufacturing/apparel sources that I can check out? Or is it a thing that you just have to hit the pavement? I'm really excited about this. I wanted to go to Europe this summer, but that won't happen, so NY is the next best thing.
