    From NYC Arts & Entertainment www.nycartsandentertainment.com

    Other guidebooks may help you know the city by suggesting ¿Walk north up Fifth Avenue from Rock Center and pass big-name stores like Saks Fifth Avenue, Henri Bendel, the NBA Store, Tiffany & Co., Cartier, Bergdorf Goodman, FAO Schwarz, and The Apple Store. You'll also see Trump Tower from the popular Apprentice TV series¿ (Frommer¿s), but I¿ve already got the 101 material under my belt. I understand such guides serve an essential purpose (and I¿ve used more than my fair share in other locales), but here my interest was piqued by the ¿sightseers verboten¿ selling point of the NFT Guide. It seemed to promise that I wouldn¿t have to hear about The Apprentice. <BR/>What was also on my mind before I dipped into the handbook was the question of whether the ancient technology of a book (instead of the internet via my pda, laptop, or desktop) was still the way to go. <BR/>So, I took it with me as I walked to work, on the weekend when I went out, kept it at the ready on my bedside table. Let me first say, regarding the ¿Tourists Need Not Apply¿ aspect, it¿s wonderful for any kind of user, whether you take pride of ownership over the City or not. On my second question, it simply is richer and more helpful than information you could try to cobble together in an hour at your computer, plus it can answer the unexpected questions that arise when you¿re on the town. Its size makes it almost as portable as a pda and it is made with durable covers and an elastic band (to bookmark or keep it compact). The interior contains full color maps and charts.<BR/>There are detailed street maps for all Manhattan, parts of Queens and Brooklyn, and Hoboken and Jersey City. All other areas (including the Bronx and Staten Island) are covered more quickly and with broader maps. The thorough maps cover the city in a grid format, with (for example) Map 14 detailing the Upper West side from West 59th to West 86th, Central Park to the Hudson. Accompanying Map 14 (and each map) are lists of essentials in the neighborhood, be it coffee stops, banks, farmer¿s markets, 24-hour pharmacies, hardware stores, etc. This aspect of including ¿points of interest¿ that relate to daily life is what especially makes this a city dweller¿s guide. After the neighborhood break-down, there are themed sections on Parks, Sports, Transit, ¿General Information¿ (again, with resident-friendly information, such as locations for post offices, hospitals, FedEx, and Wi-Fi hotspots), and Arts & Entertainment (restaurants, shopping essentials, and museums, among others).<BR/>It¿s comprehensive and user friendly, which is reason enough to recommend to natives and guests alike. But one particular reason I really like it is that it¿s a great source of information about what I¿m looking at, walking by, and living near. On my shelf at home I have a copy of The Encyclopedia of New York City by Kenneth Jackson which I frequently consult at random or on a particular question. Though it¿s obviously not the case that the NFT Guide could supplant that kind of resource, it helped me experience the city with a similar spirit of discovery. It shows that I can go by the Old Police Headquarters while easily making a stop at the Chinatown Ice Cream Factory, and helped me figure out the names (& other details) of buildings I walk by several times a week. The information is necessarily brief, but this Guide really opens up so much of the city that may have been hidden to you.<BR/>www.nycartsandentertainm

    I.Love.This.Book!

    Definitely a must-have for the serious traveler in NYC- it's small enough to fit in a pocket, and contains excellent maps of the city and transit systems. It's not fluffed up for tourists, but contains great tourist information. I wish this type of book were available for all major cities!

    Best travel guide

    This was my primary guide when making my first visit to NYC a few weeks ago. It quickly became an invaluable resource to the group I was traveling with. It's the perfect size for taking everywhere, and the maps and details were comprehensive and right on target. Good recommendations for anything and everything you are looking to see or do in the city.

    Don't visit New York City without this book in your pocket!!!

    I've made two trips to NYC since my purchase. "Not for Tourist Guide to NYC" helped me find off the beaten trail places. (Breakfast at Tiffany's apartments location) I've visited NYC many times and done most of the touristy things that the city has to offer. I was looking for something different. I would highly recommend this book for anyone who enjoys NYC. There's all typs of books on the market but if you're looking for something unique this is the book to buy!
