New York, New York it's a helluva town and with some careful planning you can keep the excitement up and the prices down.
Trips across the pond have never been the cheapest but New York holidays are improving in value all the time.
Virgin Holidays currently have package deals to NYC starting at just £499, with dates ranging from now until March 2012.
Flights and three nights accommodation, with breakfast included, at the three star Skyline Hotel in Midtown Manhattan between June 18th and June 24th, is £499 per person.
This is a saving of 28% on the regular price, but the offer ends on June 1st. Visit virginholidays.co.uk for more details.

They are currently offering three nights stay at the four star Hilton Times Square Hotel, from June 17th to the 20th, with flights from British Airways, at just £675 per person.
As the name suggests, it's located right in the heart of Times Square and the hotel soars 44 stories high into the Manhattan skyline.
If you're looking to find a cheap deal on flights, its best to act quick.
Kayak currently has several dates available in June for flights between London and New York for £385 per person and the prices gradually begin to rise beyond June 25th as we get into the heart of summer.
It's also worth remembering that New York doesn't have the same price drop on vacation packages after the peak season finishes that most other destinations do.
Although there is some reduction, the city is so popular in the winter, with people hoping to experience the famous bitter winds and snowstorms, that the low season is shorter than most.
If you have picked up a bargain on your flights and want to continue in the same cash saving vein, you might want to consider one of the city's many hostels.
Hostels have for many years had bad reputations, most commonly among those who have never stayed in them, but high class options have popped up around the globe and there is no shortage of them in New York.
Hostelling International is the biggest and most recognised brand of hostels in the world and their 624 bed location is clean, friendly and has great communal areas to meet other travelers and relax.
The drawback is that its not in Midtown Manhattan where most of the tourists stay, but it is right next to a subway stop that makes Times Square reachable in 20 minutes. Dorm rooms start at £29.28 per night.
