I first discovered these books (a series Eyewitness Travel) by accident in a Stockholm bookstore. I had just come from Gothenborg by train and was a bit dazed. The book I bought by accident was in swedish but it still useful because of all the photos, cut away views, museum pictures, and maps and historical details. When I got home I bought a pile on Amazon.com of different places that I was going or had visited - but in english.
On a cold day back here in the USA (or Canada) or elsewhere, have a glass of beer and sit in a nice chair or in the garden on a warm day and read this book. For a moment you will be back in New Yotk at a deli have corned beef on rye.
The photos and desicriptions and cutaway drawings are excellent. Plus they throw in some history and details on the art and many other things of interest. A solid 430 page effort - lots of stuff to see and absorb. What is attractive about this book are the photos and cutaway views. Normally you do not see these. But the book brings it all to life with just magnificent photos and maps. And it makes a nice souvenir post trip. Subway maps included.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't go to NYC without this guide. June 11 2003
By Deanna
As a New York City aficionado, who visits the city about four times a year, I find this book to be the best I've read. Visually, this guide is amazing. The glossy, clear and beautiful photos throughout the book, make it even more worthy of buying and the maps (including one for the subway) are also easy to understand.
The book is divided up into sections based on each area of town and then there is a chapter titled "Travelers' Needs," which includes places to stay, all types of restaurants, shopping and much more. The "Survival Guide" is also extremely helpful with its practical information. You'll also find history about New York all throughout the guide, which I find very interesting.
Another really nice thing about this book is that it is friendly to foreign visitors, explaining things like how to use a pay phone and the U.S. currency.
If you are planning on going to NYC, this "Eyewitness Travel Guide" is an absolute must have! Everything you want or need to know about this fabulous and one-of-a-kind city is right in this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars All of NY in text, maps and color photos July 24 2003
By A Customer
This is the best travel guide series there is. It presents NYC, (Manhattan, plus many interesting sites outside Manhattan) in enough detail to help you decide if you want to go there, but not so much as to make the book overwhelmingly large. It is a portable guide (we took it everywhere with us in NY) that has all the essentials. In addition to sites, it lists hotels, restaurants, information on getting around, and much more. And the index is exhaustive, so finding something quickly is easy. The pictures are informative, the maps are detailed, the information up-to-date. I reviewed a lot of guide books before buying this one. This is the best guide you could possibly want.
