We are planning to travel from Australia to be in NYC late January 2014. We live in Melbourne which never sees snow and have only ever done a day trip to see snow.
* Wondering whether we are better to buy appropriate clothing when we arrive?
* Wondering what you do with your coat, scarf, beanie, mittens etc when you enter a store like Macy's, which hopefully would be heated?
* Can we realistically walk around in the city or will we have to rely on the subway?
Any suggestions, advice would be greatly appeciated.
