I like this guide book, not so much for the information that is in there, but for all the maps and how it is set out.
Really useful for tourists because the maps are fold out, colour coded, easy to use and are broken down district by district.
It didn't leave my pocket the entire time I was in NYC

Been to NYC twice and this save my life... 30 Jun 2007
By R. Carey - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The first time I went to New York, my mom bought this for our trip. It's been a life saver since. The maps are very detailed but small enough to carry with you without looking obnoxious. The subway map is detailed as well and when you use them with your sectioned maps, it completes the whole picture. This is a must have especially for first time visitors as the maps are very easy to read. I'm going on my third trip in two months and had to pick up another copy of this, as I can't seem to find my older one. I couldn't imagine a trip to NYC without it!

REALLY handy! 5 July 2012
By Propita - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I posted that the DC guide was great? This one even more so. I did mark places we wanted to go with posits, so I wouldn't have to search each time I opened a page. This was perfect for first-time tourists. And it will go with us if we get to go back. Small enough to fit in a purse, or even my husband's back pocket, so when we needed it, we didn't have a huge map to nfold. We just stepped aside to use it and didn't have to look like total rubes.

Size is nice but info lacks a great deal 12 Feb 2012
By Liberty Corners Road - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
For a first time visitor this guide could be useful but please don't rely on it alone. The maps are decent but they leave out much of the city, not even covering all of Manhattan -- much less the outer boros. The section on Greenwich Village is appalling - with repeated recommendations for Marc Jacobs stores and other corporate entities that have destroyed the historic and cultural values of that neighborhood. I have a feeling that the many of the entries in this guide were paid for rather than selected for their innate interest/value - but I could be wrong.

Excellent map 15 July 2006
By Lauren - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I went to New York for the first time for two weeks. This map is great. It's small, easy to carry, and easy to read. You won't feel so obvious if you have to pull it out on the street corner or on the subway. It was so much better than the full size map that I got from the hotel. Beware, it only covers Manhattan. So if you have to travel to the outer boroughs (Brooklyn, Bronx, Staten Island, Queens) you'll need a different map. However, since all the siteseeing, shopping, and eating I wanted to do was located in Manhattan, it was the only map I needed.

Best travel guide bar none. Fits your pocket or small purse.. Visually great looking. There are actual pictures .... All high recommended hotels different prices..Great maps.. hard to get lost . Great recommends for food I am a shopper.. Absolutely great & unusual shops ..None of the bad tourist gear only the styling gear.. .I am familiar w/ New York but I still use this guide. This is the one I get around with...I do not go anywhere without this guide if there is one available for the destination Im will be traveling to....
