Product Description

Product Description

There is no better way to see America than on foot. And there is no better way to appreciate what you are looking at than with a walking tour. Whether you are preparing for a road trip or just out to look at your own town in a new way.

Each walking tour describes historical and architectural landmarks and provides pictures to help out when those pesky street addresses are missing. Every tour also includes a quick primer on identifying architectural styles seen on American streets.

Central Midtown (sometimes called simply “Midtown”) comprises the area between 40th and 59th streets, flanked by Eighth Avenue to the West and Park Avenue to the East. While quite a few New Yorkers work here (an estimated 700,000 commuters daily) very few actually live here...or in any area even remotely resembling Midtown.

Central Midtown is what many people imagine the entire city of New York to be. Skyscrapers, neon lights, crowds of people, a cacaphony of car horns, and so on. Even subway announcers (or digital recordings gradually replacing them) sometimes play into this by announcing the 42nd street stop as “the crossroads of the world.”

That’s where this walking tour will begin, but we will only venture as far west as Sixthe Avenue on this landmark-stuffed tour...

3.0 out of 5 stars A good read if your a actually in NY 13 Jan 2013

I purchased this for my kindle. I am going to New York next month and thought it would provide me with a little hindsight. I think it would be more helpful if you read it whilst standing in that locality as each section is quite short. The information is very interesting but I think the descriptions need more of a visual representation.

3.0 out of 5 stars Distracted by Typos 1 Feb 2012
By Lezlianne Parsons - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Using the "Walking Tour of NYC" books will no doubt get you around New York City and clue you into significant historical architecture, statuary and interesting facts about various buildings, however, the huge number of glaring typos in the Kindle edition are very, very distracting. Weren't these little books (give or take 45 pages) edited at all? It would seem not. If you view the sample of A Walking Tour of NYC - Central Midtown (, look under the Bowery Bank and you will see a sample of the typos that have me crazy. Beside the typos, I was looking for a few more pictures and more little anecdotes about the various NYC locations. But for the price, I really have no room to complain (less than a buck).

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent for exploring city 30 Dec 2013

Easy to read and find the buildings. Helps for first timers to New York to learn about important buildings in the city.
4.0 out of 5 stars Very good guide for information about the buildings 14 Aug 2014

Not too bad for macro guide to Midtown NY. It hits all the big stuff, but never gets down to many details regarding food, hotels, stuff to see off the beaten path with any real focus. It's well written, and fun to read, but the emphasis is on the buildings, their architecture, the history of the major buildings and so on. If you want to know more about all the buildings, their age, who built them, what they were originally, etc., then this is a good guide to have. It's kind of like the open air bus tours that are available, but much more depth and knowledge.
