Can’t decide on what bag to get for your trip to Manhattan? Members of our New York Forum advise tourists to carry cross-body bags because they discourage theft because they are very difficult for purse snatchers to steal. A benefit to you is that they also free your hands for carrying packages, handling tickets, paying your bills or from leaving it behind.

When you are purchasing online, you should pay attention to the product description of actual dimensions because photos may actually make them seem much larger than they actually are.
