Product Description

From the Back Cover

Spend Less and See More in New York City Are You Ready to Travel Smart? If you′d like to get the most out of your dollar and your trip, this is the guide for you. I put a fresh spin on budget travel, showing you how to see the best for less and how to see it in a more authentic way—the way the locals do. Instead of spending $300 a night for a chain hotel, why not live it up in an antiques–filled Fifth Avenue mansion for just $75, or bed down in a SoHo gallery just steps from the artwork for $110? Or how about enjoying falafel at Alfanoose for just $5, so you can splurge on up–and–coming chef Abdhul Traore′s steak frites dusted with African herbs at Les Enfants Terribles? Let me show you the "other" New York City—the one only insiders know about. Take a one–day cooking class with the city′s top chefs or get free tango lessons at the Argentine Consulate. These are only a few of the great ways to get closer to the culture of New York City. Read on for more! Happy Travels, Pauline Frommer

Best travel guide on NYC I have ever read! 15 Mar. 2007
By K. Hunter - Published on
Format: Paperback
What a great travel guide this is! I recommend it to everyone who is going to New York, or even thinking about it! After reading this you will be ready to go, and be sure to take the book with you. You will need it as a valuable resource. Once I started reading it, I could not put it down.

Pauline breaks the city down into manageable areas and explores each one in depth. I now feel familiarized with New York like never before, and I have visited there 6 or 7 times in the past. I especially enjoyed the chapter on 'Remarkable Sights and Attractions'; including a section on New York's 12 Iconic sights. Some very interesting history along with tips for visiting each sight. The chapter on 'The Other New York' has both delightful and unique ideas to satisfy everyone's curiosity. The walking tours chapter shows a fascinating way to explore the city.

The book is well-written and includes every aspect of touring New York, from eating to shopping to sightseeing to anything else; and Pauline's love of this city is evident and infectious.

While other guidebooks can be vague and confusing (as well as cater to those with big budgets,) Pauline Frommer's New York guide is clear, concise, budget-minded, and fun to read. It shows that you really can visit New York on almost any budget and have a great time experiencing it all. This guide will be the first thing in my suitcase when I pack for our trip to NYC next month! Thanks Pauline Frommer, and I look forward to reading your other guides.

This was great 13 Nov. 2006
By S. Jackson - Published on
Format: Paperback
A fabulous guide; having utilized Frommer's guides for the past 25 years, I was confident that this would be great, and I was not wrong; just came back from the trip to NYC, and the cooking class recommended by Pauline was FABULOUS== all should go to Butter Restaurant in the East Village, by the way, the chef is fab, and wonderful as a teacher, as well. She teaches in the career part of the International Culinary progam, and also does the recreational part, which the one day classes fall into. Very well done. In November all hotels and alternates are either booked or double the price; you have to know someone for a good rate at all. Jet Blue has good airfare to NYC from almost anywhere, BTW....

Solid guidebook 16 Dec. 2006
By SJ - Published on
Format: Paperback
In general, this guidebook is very helpful. Although it offers information for the budget or money conscious traveller, it can appeal to all travellers. It is full of much useful information, without the book I would not have known about Rachael Ray's show and how to request tickets for the taping. The book also provides information on many sights, stores, etc that are not often featured in other NYC guidebooks or on websites.

The main fault I found with the book was the inaccuracies in some of the important details, such as website addresses. There were a few website addresses provided in the book which did not work, and after Googling found the correct site. But other than that, I think the book is very useful and I am sure it will come in helpful on my upcoming trip.

This is a MUST HAVE book for visiting NYC 8 Mar. 2007
By C. P. Yedlicka - Published on
Format: Paperback
I am a relatively SAVVY traveler and I bought this book to get an idea about what to see from the "LOCAL" perspective. Pauline was spot on with her recommendations and information. She did a fine job with outlining the full experience and what to see and do. The only thing that I would suggest that be taken with a grain of salt is the amount of time she says it takes to see some of the sites (ie Ellis Island, Jewish Museum, Top of the Rock). Maybe I just take too long looking at stuff.

This book is MONEY WELL SPENT and is definately a MUST HAVE.

A "Must Have" Travel Guide 1 Jun. 2009
By Chippy - Published on
Format: Paperback
I just returned from a trip to NYC. My girlfriend and I had purchased this book several months before our trip and it was a priceless part of our trip. It hit the nail on the head in all areas--because of this book, we experienced the "real" NY. Yes, we did many of the "tourist" trips recommended but we also got into the neighborhoods (walking tour of lower Manhattan)and into a wonderful and fun cooking class at the Institute for Culinary Education. All of Pauline's "little tips" found in the blue boxes on various pages were perfect--example: History Written in Stone Street. It told us where to look and where to eat at every turn. By the time we were done reading this book it had at least 30 sticky notes sticking out from various pages and other pages that were ripped out so that we could carry them with us. NOTE: The best tip in the book is titled: Your New Best Friend: The MetroCard. Do your self a favor and buy the weekong unlimited pass for $25. As Pauline suggested, it gets you all over the city and to and from the airport. The subways are easy to ride. The subway maps, included in the book, tell you what lines to ride and where to get off. Enjoy your trip to NYC and buy this book!! It saved us the price of the book the first day that we were there and we ate at all of the best restaurants!
