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.
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.
