2.0 out of 5 stars There are better choices Aug. 18 2005
By P. Hageman - Published on Amazon.com
Bought this book along with Fodor's 05 New York City Guide and New York Eyewitness Travel Guide for our trip to New York in August. Overall this was the least informative book. The biggest problem is that the book mainly focuses on where to eat and where to stay, not what to see. If you want a book that details sights better, I would pick Fodor's 05 New York City Guide. I carried the book with me almost every day in New York, while the Frommer's guide was left in the hotel room to press flowers from the botanical garden.

3.0 out of 5 stars OK for background info but needs better maps Dec 14 2005
By AdventurerWA - Published on Amazon.com
I bought this book while preparing for my trip to NY and liked the Suggested NYC Itineraries section as well as how the subway stations, websites, hours, etc are listed. However, once in NY, I realized that what I really needed was a good subway map and detailed map useful when walking around. The book includes a map but I found it to be quite useless since not all streets are listed. (The map looks detailed enough to navigate yourself but it doesn't have enough detail of areas such as SoHo or Greenwich.) Even if the subway information changes frequently, I wish it had included a basic subway map so that I could navigate the system easier.
