    Hi Priya,:hiya
    Welcome to NY.Newyork state as such is expensive whichever city you live in.
    I suggest you can get groceries enough for 3 months and later you can buy from the local Indian stores.Westchester as I have heard has a good Inidan population..so will have an Indian store in the vicinity.
    Regarding clothes just get minimum Indian clothes as you can wear them mostly in spring an summer.Winter is difficult to wear churidhars,sarees etc.
    So manage your luggage compromising on clothes and containing mostly groceries ,Kitchen utensils,medicines,some winter clothes and basic day to day items.You can buy clothes as and when you get sales here..Flat kitchenware is expensive so better to get from India when you land here initially..
    Hope this information helps.
    Groceries I meant various dhals,rice just may be three kgs,any dry powders like sambar,rasam etc..
    accomodation you can ask the company or hospital which is employing your husband..or google for apartments in that area..
    shopping as I have told before..also walmart,kmart ,dollar stores are the best to start shopping around with initially..
