Not what I was looking for,
This review is from: DK Eyewitness Travel Guide: New York City (Paperback)
I usually always buy an eyewitness guide when visiting a new destination. This is the first time I was disappointed. Reason being DK eyewitness guide provide fantastic historical detail. This is great for old cities such as those in Europe and Africa.
The same doesn't work for New York which is a relatively young city.
For me the book was full of pointless facts and uninteresting historical information. There is no information on places to eat, shop and general fun things to do.
If you want to visit New York solely for its museums and history this is the book for you. If you're going for the nightlife , or want to visit some good restaurants and want a chic holiday then I wouldn't recommend this guide book.
