"The" authority site for NY Style O2, appears to be not updated anymore (except for the calendar), with a lot of broken links, but there's still a wealth of information to be found there.

Salsa Forums
If you want to discuss salsa, that's your place! The largest salsa forum/comunity around, with lots of helpful threads and in depth discussions. Careful, highly addictive!

Great articles & tutorials. The site is a little difficult to navigate, so I recommend to start with the Site Map.

Interesting Salsa Articles:

Overcoming Fear Of Social Dancing
A must-read for everyone new to and intimidated by the social salsa scene and recommended reading for people who resent the "cliquish" ways of good dancers.
