Great for 1st time visitors to learn as you walk through NYC.
On our three day visit to the city, we used two days to take in several of these walks. We experienced the richness of the neighborhoods, the diversity and the details of the architecture. My wife and I found the walks to be informative, easy to get to/fom by subway, and short enough that even in the August heat we enjoyed our walking tours. The second day, while on walk 19 (Castle to the Woods) we caught up with a younger couple from Rome who had the same 24 Great Walks ... book, we introduced ourselves, and tried to communicate our welcome to them. Although they knew little English, we smiled a lot. We also walked through SoHo and TribeCa (#6), learning of the changes in the neighborhood over many years. The Jewish Lower East side walk (#3) was very informative, and we sat in Seward Park with the pickles from The Pickle Guys at the end of our walk (then we ate at nearby Katz Deli - not in the book, but also a part of the Jewish Lower East Side). Off the grid in the West Village (#9) contained many small streets and homes with much to learn, much diffenent from the hustle and bustle of midtown Manhattan.Was this review helpful?

We'll hopefully return next year to take in more Greak Walks. We enjoyed the walks and found the book easy to use.
