Author Elevates Guide Above the Usual High Standard 2 Mar. 2001
By Peter Rasey - Published on
Format: Paperback
This is a super book packed with great information! Reid Bramblett, while working within the generally great guidelines of the Frommer's travel series, also brings out his quirky and appealing sense of humor and warmth. (I actually sought out this book because I had bought another guide he had written.) He tells these great stories about SoHo, for example, that make it more than just a listing of information.
Like all the Frommer's guides, this provides great details on what to see, but encourages you to explore on your own as well. I have practically planned my trip around Reid's advice on the neighborhood walks, and this little book is a much more convenient and authentic way to experience New York than on a bus or something.
Like I said, any Frommer's book is great. The extra bonus on this book is the author's humor and warmth.

terrific guide to Manhattan 18 May 2007
By audrey - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
We recently returned from a trip to Manhattan and used this book (among others) to take a few self-guided walking tours. This book was easy to carry and filled with useful and fun information. The walks cover the following areas of Manhattan (but not the other burroughs): Lower Manhattan/Financial District, Chinatown, Jewish Lower East Side, SoHo, Greenwich Village Literary Tour, East Village, Midtown, Central Park, Upper West Side, Upper East Side -- nothing above the park. With those deficiencies in mind, we still found this guide useful and informative. It's well organized and includes info on nearby restaurants and transportation. Emphasis on the cultural, literary and political history of each area.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is full of walks around New York City, in many different neighborhoods. There are directions on where to start, places to eat along the way, and other interesting sights to see, as well as maps to follow. We look forward to using it on our next trip to the city.
Great book for NYC Fans 8 May 2015

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The book is great for anyone wishing to explore NYC neighborhoods. This edition also includes walking tours of upper midtown which I don't believe later editions do.
