Not as good as the EyeWitness Guide to New York, but so informative nonetheless, which is what you want in a Travel Guide!

Almost as good as most of the other Lonely Planet guides I have read...though I find the history section substandard, compared to many other volumes. Not quite as detailed as I hoped it would be...though it remains an indispensible resource.

I had this one in my bag during my trip to NY and carried it all the time. When I felt lost, it only needed a quick look into the easy-to-find-something-in-it guide and voila!!! As usual Lonely Planet is the best guide you can get for any money.

compagna di viaggio a nyc. con i suoi limiti e le sue piccole prelibatezze. insomma, è pur sempre una lonely planet.

very useful information, but don't use it as a bible. Explore the city! This was a good guide, but you'll find things along the way.
