Overview

This opening fold-out contains a general map of New York to help you visualize the 8 large districts discussed in this guide, and 4 pages of valuable information, handy tips and useful addresses.

Discover New York through 8 districts and 8 maps

Downtown
Lower East Side/ East Village
SoHo/ Greenwich Village/ Chelsea/ TriBeCa
Midtown East
Times Square/ Theater District
Upper East Side
Upper West Side
Central Park/ Harlem

For each district there is a double-page of addresses (restaurants — listed in ascending order of price — cafés, bars, tearooms, music venues and stores) followed by a fold-out map for the relevant area with the essential places to see (indicated on the map by a star *). These places are by no means all that New York has to offer but to us they are unmissable. The grid-referencing system (A B2) makes it easy for you to pinpoint addresses quickly on the map.

Transportation and hotels in New York
The last fold-out consists of a transportation map and 4 pages of practical information that include a selection of hotels.

A thematic index lists all the sites and addresses featured in this guide.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
The Washington Post says, “The map guide lets you be inconspicuous: it’s as small and light as a novella, and its flip-out maps could pass as a flyer to a cool club.”

“Make sure you never lose your way in a strange city. Each of the Knopf MapGuides captures its city’s pith in a package as small as a passport wallet…”– Real Simple

“Knopf MapGuides are handy, practical and perfect for those of us who are slightly impaired when it comes to map-reading. You don’t have to search a huge crackling sheet with a microscopic index for one of 10,000 dots on the map…The extraordinary quality of the books’ beautiful hues and heavy paper also give these $8.95 guides an evocative quality that stands apart from the glossy, garish look of most travel books.” – Marin Independent Journal

“A good, handy portable item for a quick trip” – San Francisco Chronicle

“We love Knopf’s smart new map guides.” – Travel & Leisure

    Best Pocket Guides Out There. I travel a ton and I stumbled on this book on a trip to NYC. Having maps by neighborhood is much easier and the fact that the book is small and light is a key for me when traveling. My husband and I used it extensively and had a fabulous trip. I now buy them for all cities I visit if available. Unfortunately they do not get get updated as much as I would like. Regardless of the travel book you buy make sure you get a current subway map when you visit. I find that the NYC subway can vary month to month with all the repairs and upgrades that are happening. The ice cream shop in Chinatown that we found through this book was quite a gem. The restaurant selections are top notch.

    Solid guide

    I foudn the NYC guide a little too much. Although it worked fine and was very helpful - it was not as practical as I would have wanted. I still had to ask for directions and "best way to..." most of the time. NYC may be too big a city for a small guide....and this guide already had waaay too much small print to be a "practical" guide.

    Overall it still was great to puruse over coffee and to get ideas from.

    This guide was not as helpful as the D.C. guide which covers all the museums in-depth. It may also be because one visits NYC for totally different reasons than one would visit D.C.

    Good Small Map Resource

    I used this recently and found it to be a small, convenient resource for getting around New York City. It was much nicer then trying to unfold large, tourist type maps I had used on previous trips. Unlike bulky books that try to tell you everything there is to know, this one focuses mainly on the maps of each section of New York. It fit easily in my medium sized purse or a large pocket in my jacket. It was easy to use and well organized. Although the maps were great, some of the information wasn't quite up to date; i.e., it said you could still tour the NY Stock Exchange which has been closed to the public for quite a while. I wouldn't depend on it for deciding where to eat or which attractions to see. All-in-all, I would recommend this book to anyone touring NY and I'm glad I had it while I was there.
