Let's Travel - - FRONT PAGE - By Kristie Kel­la­han

Any­one who says money can’t buy hap­pi­ness has ob­vi­ously never been to New York City. The me­trop­o­lis, in par­tic­u­lar the is­land bor­ough of Man­hat­tan, of­fers ev­ery op­por­tu­nity to drop se­ri­ous cash on un­for­get­table ex­pe­ri­ences. At Masa, a pop­u­lar Ja­panese restau­rant in the Time Warner Center, din­ers rou­tinely spend US$600. Each! Nice sushi if you can get it.

For the rest of us, it is pos­si­ble to en­joy an af­ford­able hol­i­day in Man­hat­tan… you just need some street smarts, as the ‘Noo Yawk­ers’ like to say. First things first… the good news is air­fares are the low­est they have been in years. Check out Skyscan­ner or Ex­pe­dia for fares, and keep your eyes open for sale alerts. Some of the best deals come online in Novem­ber and Fe­bru­ary.
