Great Resource! 23 Jun. 2010
By Doug Giffin - Published on

I was particularly impressed with the fairly detailed overviews of each neighborhood, which is definitely valuable to a non-native New Yorker. It's also really helpful in providing essential info like what prospective tenants are going to require, landlord-tenant rights, and so on. It also give helpful suggestions for shopping, recreation and much more.

While not overly graphics-heavy, it's written in a really friendly style with a wink to some of New York's eccentricities. Definitely gets the thumbs-up!

A great book for moving for newbies! 19 July 2013

We bought this book as a recommendation from a friend! They bought the version for L.A, so looked it up and found they had one for NYC. BY far one of the best resources on the market! It details every element, from summaries of each neighbourhood (including the suburbs) as well as recommended plans for moving and getting settled! I would highly recommend this as your first book to purchase if you plan a move to the Big Apple!

Super Useful, a newcomer must 21 Mar. 2013
By Rachel - Published on

I purchased this book in 2010 when I was beginning to plan for my move to NYC. I felt like this was such a daunting task and really had no idea how to even begin apartment hunting, much less what neighborhood to look in!

I found the breakdowns of every borough super useful in this book. They took not only borough but also almost every neighborhood in the area and gave you a look at the history of that area but also what you kind find there now. What you can expect prices wise to be like, shopping to be like, what type of nightlife and culture is there. I found it to be incredibly accurate during my search.

I was able to select neighborhoods that I was interested in seeing and then go and walk around them.

This books gives you school districts and police precincts for all of the neighborhoods, it was just an amazing tool for me to use.

Although some of the price info may be outdated now the neighborhood information is still relevant. I am currently looking to move somewhere else within the city and am using this book to read about neighborhoods I am still a little unfamiliar with.

This book has lots of good information for someone unfamiliar with New York City. It has been helpful in pointing me in the right direction where to start preparing for a move to NYC.
