But that's precisely the thing I found with my experience of New York - that although we all grow up watching it on our tv screens and venture to the neon beast that is Times Square on our holidays, New York offers everybody their own little unique taste of it.

My sister was officially in labour. It was a little surreal since I just rolled over and continued to snooze, conscious of the pain she was about to endure and the chaotic hub of emotion about to let fly, but geographically and mentally I couldn't have felt further away. Winnipeg, CA - 3,630 miles away from Dublin city.

Even during our 4th visit to the city in early January, my partner and I were still struggling to fit in everything we wanted to see. Because every time we get to NYC there are new things to do, old things to revisit and favourite places we just need to cram in.

The increased interest in SMEs and domain names has however, brought to light some interesting stats. With a government report stating that there are over five million micro-businesses1 in the UK, it is surprising that over a third of them still don't have a website!

New York City became my favourite place as soon as I stepped off that bus. Aside from partying on hotel rooftops, eating copious amounts of pepperoni pizza and hardcore celeb spotting, of course I hit up all the tourist hotspots.

I *heart* NY, I really do. I also love tat - any kind of kitsch or tacky dust-trapping tourist nonsense - but it tends to drive my better half crazy so this trip I resolved to find some stylish and hopefully even useful pieces instead of yet more snow globes.
