Format: Paperback
This book was very helpful. I enjoyed the brief history of NYC and the simple easy descriptions of different sections of NYC.
They have very good suggestions on Cabs, Subways, Buses, Eating, where to stay, suggested itineraries, etc. Loads and loads of contact information for museums and sights to see.
Easy to follow index to look up anything you might want to do or need info on.

We loved this book! We especially liked the author's opinions. Our hotel was right on and so were the restaurants. We appreciated the fact that the author was opinionated.............who needs another book that simply lists all to see and do. We actually felt like real New Yorkers and not just tourists. Kudos Brian!

13 of 16 people found the following review helpful By A Customer on July 8, 2002
Format: Paperback
This book was very helpful. Clear explanations about how to get around New York from taking a taxi from the airport to taking the subway. The maps are the strong point of the book. Each chapter describes either hotels or major sites or shopping or museums and comes with very clear maps with all locations marked. I ripped out those pages and took them with me. Some interesting out of the way spots (like art galleries, nightclubs, etc.) are described but the book isn't great for that. My only criticism is really more of a warning about the hotel that I stayed in Greenwich Village. The Incentra is a gay hotel and straight visitors may not be treated as well as gay ones. Whatever you do, do not agree to stay in the "Garden Room," it's a creepy basement and the only thing that grows there is the mold on the walls.

Make it this one if you are going to NY. I bought several books and this was the best laid out of all the books and it doesn't try to be a resource for ALL restaurants or ALL stores - it just gets to the best.

I loved nearly every recommendation. The only one that I had a beef with was the "Kid friendly" rating of Mickey Mantles. Not sure how a small bowl of pasta for $10 and no sides is "kid friendly."
