This is the 5th in my collection of DK eyewitness travel guides. They are concise, informative and have great images. A must have for any city break traveller. Clearly identifying the city by district with a wealth of information about must do and must sees. A foldout street map and a 4 days in new york section giving abridged details and reference to more detailed information within the guide is extremely useful. I have tried many different travel guides but find this range works best for me!

A very good and easy to use guide. The suggested walks are excllent and the guide is very informative and easy to use. My only criticism is that the title could be mis-leading. This is a superb guide for Manhattan but has little to say about the rest of the city of New York. If you want a first-class guide to Manhattan this is the book for you - if you want a guide for the whole city you need to look elsewhere.

I love DK travel guides! Not only do you get lots of information on the city or country which you are visiting but you get great illustrations, maps, and photographs of the area.

The New York guide is packed full of relevant information, on planning your trip, which airport to arrive at, how to reach the city from the airport, advise on cabs, subways, buses, hotel information and money and health and personal safety. You then get a large amount of background information on all of the areas in the city, with a chapter by chapter breakdown of the city, which begins with a map of the relevant street and then goes on to all of the places of interest and where they are located.

There are chapters on where to stay, with the hotels broken down into prices and star ratings. The same is done for where to eat, drink, club, hear music, see shows, etc. They cover everything you would need to know for a holiday in New York.

The only down size is this guide is quite heavy and would weigh you down a bit. I took this and kept it at the hotel so that it could be browsed before leaving to explore and i carried a small rough guide to the city on me which is much easier to carry (but not a beautiful). Finally once you have returned from your holiday you get a lovely book which will act as a reminder to your visit to this wonderful city.

This is one of an excellent collection of guides done by DK. It is clear, interesting, and points you in the right direction to see all the best sights.
I always have one with me when I visit a new city, and it is always useful. The maps are particularly helpful, as are the walks.

I wanted a guide book that also offered maps and pictures- this does exactly that. The book goes through the city area by area and gives you plenty of ideas of where to visit. Will definitely take the book when we go to make use of the maps etc included for many of the attractions. There are suggested walking routes to take in all the sights.

I've purchased a few DK guides over the years and have always found them very useful and thorough,this one is no different.from the mapping to the text everything is clear and concise,even giving suggestions on tour routes dependant upon the number of days you are there.I am going to New York soon and won't be taking any other guidebooks with me apart from this one,it's a handy size and will easily fit in a jacket pocket (bit too thick for the back pocket of my jeans)

Good pop out map and a subway map. Self guided tours are nice. Division by areas is quite handy too. The information and descriptions are accurate. It helped our planning and overall was a good buy.

This is by far the best guide book series and the one on New York is no exception. It takes you area by area with pictures, sketches and a brief description of the place in question. It's also fun to read.
