Perfect size to fit in to a jacket pocket or front pocket of a bag. Really useful and great idea with the fold out Map. I bought this as gift for a friend visiting NYC for several month and they the response from them was that this book was really useful for getting their bearings.

This is an excellent guide and exactly like the title suggests. Unlike my other two tourist guides (which I rarely used), it wasn't packed with boring information that you can find on the internet anyway, but was giving real advice by contributors who spend their life and know the city. I have chosen many restaurants using this guide and I was never dissapointed. These are choices by people that have really been in these places and their short comments give you exactly what you need to know. A big 'thank you' for making my stay in NY much more interesting

The print in this book was so small I was unable to read it. I liked the size of the book as it would have been handy for keeping in a pocket when sightseeing, but it was useless for me. Also ordered the Eyewitness guide, which was bigger, heavier, and had readable print.

HASH(0x94da6f60) out of 5 stars Poor restaurant and coffee shop choices; decent transit information 31 May 2014
By monty - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I moved to New York 9 months ago for graduate study at NYU in Greenwich Village. When I received NFT in the post I naturally went to the Greenwich Village section to see how the book's recommendations lined up with my experience of the area from being there almost every day over the past academic year. The result was pretty disappointing.

The coffee shops recommended are really ... meh. The area features two great places. Third Rail is a small sociable shop where customers generally don't linger to work, making it almost certain you'll get a table - a novelty in this part of town. On the other side of the park, Stumptown Coffee offers an extraordinary variety of coffee making methods that really excite every first timer. Neither of these are featured in NFT. Instead it recommends Joe's, one of these chains that's halfway between an independent shop and Starbucks.

It's a similar story for food. If you ask an NYU local what's a good place to get some cheap takeout food, half the time you'll be recommended the infamous Mamoun's falafal and hummus shop on MacDougal street ... but this doesn't appear at all. As I looked through other parts of the book I noticed that other really standout food places were also omitted. As an example, Pok Pok NY, a well priced ($20 entree) excellent Thai place in Red Hook that's recommended by the Michelin Guide and was featured on Anthony Bourdain's travel No Reservatons show isn't listed. It doesn't make any sense. I really can't understand how a guide book for the locals misses such key places.

The end result for me is a lack of confidence in this book: if I see it giving mediocre recommendations for areas I know, it makes me skeptical about using it for exploring areas I don't know.

The concept here is great but the execution, in my opinion, is a let down.

HASH(0x9a3adb04) out of 5 stars Good, but hard to read 22 Dec. 2013
By RonAnnArbor - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The maps seem much improved in this version and are accurate and easy to read. The downside is the type is so small (I think 2-3 point in some places!) that some of the book is virtually impossible to read with my 50'year old eyes. Good information, good quality print and paper, and it will last you a year banging around in your backpack.

HASH(0x9735ce94) out of 5 stars Very handy reference book 7 Mar. 2014
By jinha - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
-Good detailed book especially when discussing "how to get there"
-Complete address for the establishments listed in the book
-Short historical background of areas, stations or landmarks
-Not only includes establishments for shopping, dining or nightlife but also of stadiums, stations, transit and towing (HA! Happens a lot on road cleaning days)

Got this book for my girlfriend while she studies a semester in New York City. Although she is getting better at maneuvering within the city, she always tosses it in her purse as a "just incase" book.. Great tiny book that is easy to take on the go.
HASH(0x9632399c) out of 5 stars Great guide for longer or frequent visits to NYC. 2 Mar. 2015
By R. Bowman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Great guide for those who have been to NYC a few times and want to dig deeper than the usual sights and name restaurants. Very handy, shows where things like banks and drug stores and coffee shops are, with great short reviews of places. It is small and very well organized, fits in a back jeans pocket. It is organized by neighborhood and each section has several great maps, showing things like transportation, restaurants, coffee, bagels, ATMs etc.

I go to NYC a couple times a year and stay 4 or 5 days. I've had three different editions of this, get a new one every couple years. Only thing is the print is very small, OK for me but might be an issue for some folks.
