Final note: obviously you will find your way with this guide. The new colourful layout is somewhat nicer than the old one. However I lost my patience looking for the information I needed and finally explored NYC with the guide I found in my friends' flat, which was the 10 top of NYC equivalent in French. It was surely the last time I bought LP guide of a city, and will think twice before buying other LP in the future.
Shopping gets special attention on a neighborhood-by-neighborhood basis. Good approach, but if you're a first-time visitor to NYC using this guide, keep in mind that stores tend to come and go frequently and even annual sales events can change dates from year to year. The guide includes a "Month-by-Month" calendar of events, but this is very limited and doesn't come near to mentioning the hundreds happening hour-by-hour every day of the week. If you use this guide, you'll want to supplement with New York Magazine, The New Yorker, etc. to get a full cultural schedule.
Overall, this is a pretty good effort that probably will work best for the newcomer who can't or doesn't want to get bogged down in the overwhelmingness of the Big Apple. Priced at a moderate $19.99.
I would find more itineraries really helpful, planning my 5 nights in NYC has been tough.
I bought two of these, one for my sister, one for me, because they were such a good price.
I agree with the other reviewers, there is a risk we all end up in the same place! I also agree that the index is terrible, I found pretty tricky to find what I knew must be in the book somewhere!
