This review is from: Pocket Rough Guide New York City (Pocket Rough Guides) (Paperback)
on a recent trip to NYC this little book was invaluable. although we had a fair idea of where we wanted to be, the maps in each section (for each district), and the subway map in the front were fantastic for navigating.
the book is mainly for manhattan island, only briefly mentioning the outer boroughs (the bronx, queens, brooklyn, stanen island). We did use the book to get us to Yankee Stadium (in the bronx) and to brooklyn, but we spent most our time in manhattan any way, so not really an issue for us, but perhaps a problem for the more adventurous.
fits perfectly in your pocket, and is light enough not to make a difference, and cheap enough for any pocket too!
After earlier trips to paris and barcelona i no longer travel without a pocket rough guide, and the new york guide totally lives up to my every expectation... a must have for any traveller.
