Packing list for summer in New York

Jump to last reply

Help! I am going to New York for the summer soon (to work) and I'm really not organised about what to pack. I won't have tons of space in the suitcase so I don't want to overpack but then I don't want to forget anything either. I've made a list quickly, could anyone let me know if there's stuff I haven't thought about? Am I overpacking with clothes? I could be there up to 4 months and won't be able to do laundry all the time. I will try to handwash what I can.
