Hockey shop, New York city

I need some new hockey skates. I have a deep instep and am having trouble finding skates to fit me right here in the UK. Luckily I have a work visit to NYC in a couple of weeks and will have a few hours free to go buy some skates. So, simple question:

Where should I go?

Am already planning on a visit to Westside Skate & Stick.

Any other ideas?

I know Paragon Sports near Union Square has hockey stuff, I only ever bought a stick there though so I don't know how they do skates. I have a friend who works/worked at West Side and I went there for my skates. They were awesome there helping me pick the right skate for my price and helping with the size. They baked them there and punched out the front in one of the boots. They really know what they are doing over there.

Westside is definitely your best bet.

If you could get out of the city go to Hockey Monkey in Woodbridge NJ. Plus you'd probably find better prices.

If you have a rental car, Hockey Monkey has a store in Woodbridge over in Jersey.

*EDIT - sorry Bruno, didn't see your post.

I don't think that's going to happen, so it'll be Westside for me

Went to Westside Skate n Stick yesterday and came out with a pair of Graf Supra 735. 3,000 miles is a long way to go to a skate shop but they're a fantastic fit, and really good service. Can't wait to see what they're like on the ice tomorrow morning.

Paragon usually has sales on skates this time of the year. I've never been to Westside surprisingly even though I live in Manhattan.
