Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This is part of a new series of travel books designed for "cosmopolitan travelers," and the general format is more active than that of many travel books. Pages intersperse black-and-white photos cut into squares, circles, and triangles with text highlighted in black, yellow, and green. There is a lot of text, with topics subdivided into ten main areas: Engaging, Navigating, Sleeping, Sightseeing, Exploring, Exercising, Buying, Eating, Entertaining, and Planning. Descriptions are more biting than usual, e.g., the Guggenheim Museum is called a giant toilet bowl, and a "Tourist Traps" section is included. Entertaining includes Gay/Lesbian, Live Folk, and Sex, illustrating how inclusive this book tries to be. The cover is bright and appealing, but the text-intensive content may deter many. In addition, there are few maps. This book may be most useful for those already familiar with the city. Consider buying for large public libraries located near New York.--Alison Hopkins, Queens Borough P.L., Jamaica, NY

    Very Hip. Very Informative.

    New York is a huge and diverse place, and most guidebooks only scratch the surface. This terrific book took us to neighborhoods that the other guides we had never heard of (nolita?!) and brought us into shops that are cutting edge. The restaurant listings are great too, and they call it like it is. Pretty much everything this guide said was spot on. And our trip was better for it.

    If you want to know what's hot in New York, read this book...

    I live in New York and bought the book for its restaurant reviews and night-life reviews. The book is well-written and is more or less dead-on in its recommendations. Whether you are a tourist or you live in New York, you will find this book useful. The writers gear the book toward readers in their 20's and 30's. It is definitely not a family guide to New York.
