Bring your own tobacco and buy regular cigarettes at the airport in Greece. Cigarettes in NYC are over $7 per pack.

It soes not appear to be sold commonly -- if at all -- in the US. he might try a tobacco store such as Nat Sherman to see what they have that is similar.

Prior to your arrival check the Nat Sherman website.

Also, NS has just moved from the corner of 42nd and 5th just across the street on 42nd, catty corner to the old location, just down from the NY Public Library.

Amazingly, Ednoo came up with some good advice here.

Check Nat Sherman, if they don't have it, nobody will.

Good luck!

Nat Sherman doesn't even sell loose cigarette tobacco- don't bother going there, if that's what you're looking for.

If you are travelling from the UK, the cheapest way to buy it is duty free at your departure airport. Sometimes there are extremely good offers on tobacco like buy 2 get one free.
