layers all the way..if you can, invest in a gortex shell (ex. northface or patagonia)...they're worth every dollar especially in messy nyc winters
Also how useful will it be for me to bring my car? Should I bring it or leave it in cali and take the metro?
I have locs so I hit up Khamit Kinks to get my hair done. An attorney I know referred me there. They do all kinds of natural hair styles and they have a website if you want to check 'em out. The lady who does my hair does Stevie Wonders locs.I also heard great things about Curve Salon so I'm sure you'd be fine going there as well.For the brows, I go to Pinky's on 6th ave between 38th and 39th St to get mine threaded. They always hook me up. Don't bring your car... stick to the subways and cabs. You've probably heard this before but parking is very difficult and expensive. I'd suggest layering up for the winters because it's only cold when commuting. Once you get to your destination (which probably has heat), you don't want bulky clothes weighing you down.
