This is a great guide to use whilst you are visiting New York as well as a great souvenier to browse through.
This guide will help you decide what you want to visit whilst in Manhattan, areas of art you maybe interested in and where to find them. Because it is organised by area, you are able to use this in conjunction with your travel guide so that whilst you are for example on the Upper East Side, you will then be able to see what essential architecture and art is within walking distance.
This is not a sumptuously illustrated guide, what you get is useful background information (historical, etc), it highlights the major works of art you may want to see and visit and most importantly it tells you how to get there. A great gift for a visitor to New York or just anyone who loves the city.
