I am going to New York alone and, in the last 3 weeks, have been overwhelmed with guides, maps blah blah blah...I must have bought 9 or 10 different guides to NY each promising to unlock the city for me.I spent the money, took them home but did not feel not all that jazzed about what I learned from them. Then yesterday, I saw New York City for Dummies. OK, I hate being lumped in with the proletariate, but when I opened the book and found details that trumped every other book that I had purchased (sorry about the pun ), I ended staying up until 2 a.m. with my yellow marker highlighting this and that. If you are any kind of nerdly artistic type this book stands heads above any Frommer or Fodor. I discovered where to buy beads in NY (I enjoy making jewelry), what the best museum shops are. Plainly written, easily digested. Recommended.

I did get what I paid for. The book was an old library book and quite used, but the seller was up front about it. I have several of the "for dummies" books and love the layout. I am missing the yellow repositioning tabs in this book though, they are really helpful.

We recently visited NY and I found this book to be a great asset. I especially enjoyed the information and maps of the city's sites and the parks. This ones a must to have.

I have puchased this book in the past & loved it. This edition was okay at best. Not as detailed as previous edition.
