If you want to buy cigarettes in New York City then you'll be spending quite a bit of money per pack or carton of cigarettes.
The last time I was in New York City I saw the cheapest pack of cigarettes were $10.50 per pack while some other brands costs $13.00 and 14.00 per pack which was too expensive.
So if you pay $10.50 per pack of cigarettes in New York City then you'd pay $105.00 to $150.00 per carton of cigarettes.
New York City is pretty expensive for anything and even cigarettes and I certainly would go broke smoking cigarettes in New York City.
I'm so glad I quit smoking as it's better for my health and my wallet.
