    Superior

    This volume doesn't come from one of the travel book series that begins with 'F' and therefore may not have the brand name recognition but if you open it up you will see an amazing difference. This is a very personal book by an author who knows this subject amazingly well. One other book I saw (there are three or four covering this topic) for example was written by a woman who could not see past the needs of her own kids. This author is very much devoted to servicing a range of ages and preferences without judgment. Especially nice this is the only book that seems to have sufficient information for teens and understands them as a unique group. Also geared I think towards intelligent kids who want to do more than just visit theme restaurants though those are well covered too. I found the book interesting to read quite apart from planning the trip.

    TREMENDOUS!

    I discovered author Ellen Shapiro through her other book, Relocating to New York, and I bought this one because the other was so good. This is primarily targeted at people visiting New York with kids, but I found it tremendously useful as someone who actually lives here. It's amazing how much New Yorkers don't know about their home town from a kids' perspective. I can't imagine how much research went into this book -- it's truly passionate and encyclopedic. And it really towers above the other guidebooks I've seen with similar titles.

    Amazing guide

    I don't usually think of travel guides as books that are fun to read but this one is both a great guide and a great read. The author Ellen Shapiro has passion for the city as well as expertise and this is so much better than the other kid guides to New York that it would be hard to even talk about them in the same sentence. The chapter on ethnic neighborhoods and the shopping chapter are amazing. Also the museums and the zoos listings which contain miniature guides to each attraction with all the information you could possibly need. I found myself reading about the attractions I was not even visiting because I enjoyed the writing so much. Kids like the book too because it is full of trivia tidbits and photographs.
