Having never been to NYC I can't say how accurate this is but it seems to mostly hit the spots everyone knows about. Just seemed like it could be stereotypical, but then maybe lots of New Yorkers do really have bagels for breakfast and go to the Empire State Building. Would have like to see more things people who live there might do every day. Still, it's cute and has a nice rhyme so could be fun to prep kids for a trip.
The writing seemed really jerky, and there was no real conflict or any reason to draw me through the story. This would be a useful book in a lesson on transition or time words like "after," "then," "next."

Cute quick read, I do wish I knew who had written it because the text was perfect.
