Pin or Sign with Credit Card?

When in NYC will I have to sign or use my pin number when paying with my credit card? I'm taking it for emergency use only. Also, is there anywhere that I shouldn't use it apart from the usual unknown, dodgy places that I wouldn't use at home?

Nowhere springs to mind ;-)

You will have to sign. The US does not use PIN numbers with credit cards (only debit cards).

Sometimes larger establishments (e.g. chain drugstores, supermarkets) won't even bother having you sign if the amount is small -- maybe something like under $25.
