"Also, Fleet Week is cancelled."
But when it held, it's in May, around Memorial Day, not in June when the OP is coming here.

I haven't read every word you've written giggle, but skimming the thread, you should know the Distrikt is a wonderful newish, modern hotel on an unattractive but very convenient block behind the Port Authoirty bus terminal. It's MUCH nicer than any of the other hotels you've grouped it with. Imo it's nicer than most of the hotels in the next more expensive group. I you havent discovered oyster.com you should have a look at their photos.

If you'd prefer staying in Soho, there are 3 chain hotels there, Hampton Inn Soho, Four Points Soho and Courtyard Soho that are usually more affordable. There's a new boutique hotel in the village called the Jade you might check.

You are getting great advice from some very knowlegeable posters here, but I noticed you mentioned figuring in the cost of taxis--my daughter and I spent a week in New York last May and only used a taxi to get to and from LaGuardia and one night coming home from a restaurant. The rest of the time we took subways (there was a stop just 1/2 block from our hotel in Chelsea) and the occasional bus. While riding in a cab in a quintessential New York experience, it can also be very slow and the costs add up. Definitely buy the 7-day transit pass! When we were there it was $29, but I think it may have gone up.

B&H is not just a store, it's an experience. It is maybe half of a city block (just guessing) and two or three stories. Staff extremely knowledgeable--we spent time on the computer/music floor and my son the techie thought they were great! No Best Buy here. Also note that the store is closed on Saturdays rather than Sundays. It was on about 34th, and not far from many things. If you love photography, I'd stop.
