Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: DK Eyewitness Travel Guide: New York City (Paperback)
I am a fan of these picture books. It made a good read ahead of the trip enabling me to plan what I wanted to do and see. There's a useful section on American history and the history of Manhatton Island. The over view of the skyline helps identify
significant buildings. When in New York I used it for info an the different areas we visited, for instance at Grand central station its fascinating to see the cross section of how the trains and main concourse fit together. The magnificent Chrysler building is not just the outside view from the ESB but inside the lobby is awesome and the book has a photo of an elevator door to give you an idea. The street by street section helps to pull together the areas littered with must see buildings such as Lower Mid Town.
When on top of the ESB we where able to feel that we knew New York and could see where we had been due to the great photos I the book , they look like the real thing!
We have been back now 3 weeks and the book also is great to have on the book shelf, its full of places we know and memories of a exhausting but enjoyable time.
