    I've just landed on New York and am in a hotel near Broadway. I intend to find some highly recommended books here that are not available in my country. Any places?

    Not from NY area, but I'd be willing to bet that if you look up a Borders or Barnes & Noble, you will find something useful. I've heard rumors of some pretty OK chess clubs in NYC as well.

    I'm not from the NYC area either, but I've heard of Fred Wilson's Chess Books. He's on 80 East 11th Street, which doesn't look too far from you (depending where on Broadway you are). Check the link for his store hours.

    I also just found this year-old article on NYC chess stops that might help you.
