I try to do long weekends for a little rest and relaxation. Now that I'm aware of this series, I've decided to invest a little time and money to pick up some of these to enrich those mini-vacations.

One future trip will be to New York City. And the Eyewitness Travel "New York" surely looks like a good companion for such a trip.

Ever since I used one in London, the "eyewitness travel guides" have been my favorites. They are very visual. Above all, I appreciate the focus on each individual neighborhood, (one at a time!), including very clear and navigable little maps. In the back there are also lists of interesting locations based on subject; I recently spent awhile poring over the food pages.

My one complaint is that this book is quite heavy for a tourist book that you'll be carrying around.

Great book!!! The restaurant section had great choices and the maps were extremely helpful when moving through the city. The subway map was a little small, but was also helpful. The information was accurate and I loved the the book was broken down by area and color-coded by area making it incredibly easy to find exactly what you were looking for. I would definitely use the book again and buy books for other cities that I plan on visiting.

A really, really good book about New York. Lots of trivia and fun things, instead of the "standard guidebooks"
I recommend this book dearly.

Read this book front to back before my first trip to NYC. Really helped me to learn about the NY way of doing things. Took it with me on the trip and used it often.
