It all depends whether or not you want to eat at a restaurant, go out and have a drink at a bar, go listen to music at a club, or just buy groceries, and eat where you are staying. If you eat out at all, or go out to a nightclub for a drink, your money will go very fast. Also will you go by subway or bus, or take a taxi. $1000 would be better to give you a little room for a treat or special occasion, but still would have to be careful.

It depends, is the budget for all the time in NY and Nashville or just the time traveling in between the two cities? If it is just the in between time and travel then $500-$600 would be enough assuming you scope out your hotels/hostels first and plan to stay at any hotels Sunday - Thursday as hotels will cost more on the weekends.

Anything in NY is outrageously expensive. A drink at a bar can easily top $10.00, most any dining establishment other than some sort of fast food will be a minimum of $25.00.

If you are driving, gas will be between $3.25/gallon and $4.25/gallon depending on location and fluctuations in gas prices.

I would definitely bring some money in the form of cash. Some places will not take travelers checks, some things like the NY subway will require cash. Getting money out of an ATM machine can cost anywhere from nothing to $10.00 dependingon where you are.

The amount of money you will want to bring depends on exactly what you want to do and what you will have to pay for. If you have ideas of things you might wantto see or do in any of the areas you plan to stay, do a little searching online for prices. It could be NY broadway shows, attractions in Memphis, hotels or hostels that might be on your way. If you'll have to take cabs, they can be really expensiveL

but Philly has an excellent regional rail transportation system that can save a lot as does NY.
