Where to get a Cricket Bat in New York ?

You guys know of any places in or/ around Manhattan where I can find a good cricket bat, suitable for tape ball cricket ? Also, how much is it likely to cost ?

try playing cricket with a hockey stick. I am not sure of tape ball but tennis ball or dipped in water is good. It is fun. I am guessing for tape ball you just need a bat

Nowhere in Manhattan, take a trip down Conney Island avenue in Brooklyn, there are a few halal meat shops that sell CA tape ball bats.

you can also go to Jersey city's Indian shopping area on Newark ave, there is a dvd shop that sells them.

or you can PM me and i can pick one up for you, i work in Manhattan.

There is a sports shop on cony island ave. I am not exactly sure of its location but it is by the beach...so basically follow the road till the end. Plenty of desi shops there then ask someone if they know where the sports shop is located. They carry lots of cricket related items.

Thanks for asking bro but thats no prob.. I am ony 30 mins away from Manhattan so I can pick it up myself. Can you just give me a rough estimate with regards to the prices ? Cos I am going to Pak anyway in May so might as well wait till then if its too expensive. Thanks...
