Amazing that there are so many things to do in this great city! I would mention that although the book gives tons of things to do, I think about half it is restaurants, bars, and shops. Still 500 things to do is pretty good.

This book was quite helpful in preparing for our trip to New York. We got a lot of ideas of what to do. I flipped through it and highlighted the things that sounded interesting and ran it by our friends who lived there to get their opinion. 75% of the time, they agreed and the other 25% they would send us to something better.
In the end, I think it's a great tool to have when exploring NYC! I will definatly use it again when I go back and try to hit up the other places that I didn't get to.
A great book, even if you're a New Yorker. I spent the first twenty years of my life in NYC and have been visiting ever since, and had no idea that Barnum and Bailey Circus march their elephants through the tunnel every year in the week before the circus comes to town. Who knew you could see elephants in the streets of NYC!

This book definitely has something for everyone to do when they come to New York. The entries are extremely detailed and the glossary is set up so you can browse via monthly activities or free activities. If you're interested in picking this book up, make sure you get the 2010 updated edition.
Been to NYC many times before and looking for something new, or even a first timer? This is great book, full of ideas. Enjoy.

because the only thing more fun than living in new york is crossing things off of a to-do list.
