    Good but some problems

    Ok this book was a very important resource for me whenever I recently went to NYC. For the most part it is good a few of the addresses where incorrent (Tiffany & Co.) but for the most part of a mild guide through the city it is great. The club suggestions are great. If you want a very deep view of what to do in the city you might want to choose another book though because this is not hardly detailed enough. They should check some of the address suggestions because they could get people totally turned around and in bad areas.
