Overview

Living in New York is a uniquely challenging experience, but the payoffs—the excitement, diversity, and culture—are what keeps us here, and the happiest New Yorkers are the ones who have learned how to get the best out of the city. Divided into three general sections, NYC: An Owner’s Manual covers everything residents or someone new to the city—or new to a neighborhood or apartment—needs to know. "Surviving" covers the details all New York City residents should have at their fingertips: the dry cleaners who can remove the deepest stains; the place to go when your computer suddenly dies; mastering the subway; and supermarket rankings. "Thriving" introduces readers to the icing on the cake of NYC life, presenting the best local activities, great deals, and favorite tips on having fun in the city, including how to make friends; different places to throw parties and dinners; the best and least crowded gyms, tennis courts, movie theaters, and sales; last-minute fun for a lazy Sunday afternoon; easy weekend getaways; how to dine in style and on a budget; and the best things to do in the city by yourself.
