On a recent visit to New York, we spent our days filling a Flip cam to bring you the best of the Big Apple. From beer halls to barbeque huts - if it was cool, we had it covered.

Although, given our days spent pounding Manhattan's pavements, we had no qualms spending our nights in style at the city's Tribeca Grand Hotel.

Located in one of Manhattan's most exclusive neighbourhoods, The Tribeca Grand opened in 2000 and has since maintained a loyal following among New York's well-heeled creative crowd.

Though we spent our sleeping hours in the room (and what a room - stellar views of the city, a smorgasbord of gadgets and space to swing a very large cat) the majority of our time was spent swaning around in The Church Lounge guzzling "Perfect Ten" cocktails - a potent mix of Svedka vanilla vodka, pineapple juice, lemon - and munching super-manly short Rib Empanadas.

Considering our passion for film, we were pleased to discover that The Tribeca Grand shared our dedication. Though it's unsurprising, considering the hotel's self-appointed role of "The Film Capitol of New York".

Introduced earlier this year, The Tribeca Grand features 14 "iStudios", all of which are equipped with (deep breath) an iMac; FinalCut Pro editing software; iSight video conferencing cameras; Apple wireless keyboard; an Apple wireless mouse; built-in Bluetooth module and both an iPod and BOSE Sound Dock.

Most excitingly,  iStudio guests are given a Flip Ultra HD video camcorder for the duration of their stay, with which they can record their New York experience, before editing it up in the studio.

For more from our trip, and to see our own film-based handiwork, watch the first episode in our series of New York city guides. First up, it's food.
