About the Author

New York–based Myka Carroll edited 70-plus travel guides for Frommer’s before jumping to the other side of the desk as a freelance writer. Her favorite New York movie is Smoke, her favorite New York band is Sonic Youth, and her favorite New York hero is Shirley Chisholm. She would like to thank her family and dearest friends for their unwavering support, and to give props to the gang at Academy Restaurant, the best diner in the city. She dedicates a knife, a fork, a bottle, and a cork to Benjamin Más, the best sun ever.

Best New York City Book Dec 17 2010
By Robden - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is my first review of anything on Amazon, and I was looking to get this book for my friend for Christmas and noticed that this book only had 2 reviews.....One good and one not so good, so I decided that I should add a review. If you have never been to New York City before, then get this book!!! I bought this book before I made plans to go to the city. We spent 3 days there and by using this book we had an awesome time!!! I can't believe the things we did and saw in just 3 days and I know we wouldn't have if I didn't get this book........well worth it!! I also recommend the New York City Pocket Map, just like it says fits in your back pocket and has a great pop up map and very easy to understand subway map.
