Having read a couple of other guide books on NY, I have to say that is by someway the best. It gives the reader a comprehensive guide to all of this fantastic cities facets from the equally diverse communities and architecture to its infamous sights to those less famous corners. Add to this a superb selection of maps to the cities many districts and a guide to the surrounding areas, you have an excellent reference to those contemplating a visit to New York for the first time, or those returning, who haven't yet experienced all that 24hr city has to offer.

This was the third time i'd been in NYC but the first time with a guide book.I've managed to see and do more in two days using this book than I covered in the previous visits lasting three days each.
Buy this at least a week before your visit and plan what to see and where to go using the SUBWAY to avoid the seemingly unending trek from Central Park through to Fort Clinton.You'll be able to fit in all of those "must see" sights without requiring the services of either a chiropodist or an emergency room attendant.
Be aware of the extra security requirements in force for most public entry attractions i.e.an average of two hours queue for the Liberty Island Ferry and no access to the Lady herself.
Great book , great people and great city , Enjoy.

I worked in New York for 6 months and needed a guide to get me around town and to find everything New York had to offer. The Lonely Planet guide was awesome, giving just enough information to see me through without overdoing it. The guide has some great walks that are definitely worth doing and the Subway map at the back come's in handy so often. It will tell you where to shop, eat, drink, sleep, take in the sights and get you home from all five everytime. The only guide to buy.

By A Customer on 21 May 2004
Format: Paperback
As an expat who has recently moved to New York, this book has been great. Full of colour photos, it is a pleasure to read - so read it before you go, and is invaluable as a city guide. It allows you to plan exactly what to see and do so you can cram the major sites into a couple of days. This has been updated since 9/11 (and this is mentioned throughout the book) but is a bit out of date now - the Statue of Liberty itself is not open to tourists, although you can still take the ferry to Liberty Island (I recommend the free Staten Island ferry instead) and much building work has taken place at 'ground zero'. My main cruiticism of this book is the comments on the subway, which are out dated- it actually is very user friendly, but check whether you are boarding a local or express train. Each trip now costs $2 and it is not usually quicker to walk 20 blocks.
Take this book and a pair of very comfy shoes and you;ll have a fantastic time!
