Pauline Frommer's highly-personal guide to her own home city has, in previous editions, twice been named "Best Guidebook of the Year" by the North American Travel Journalists Association. It has been the best-selling guide to the city for the last five years. Though she deals with luxury choices as well as bargains, she makes a special effort to overcome New York's reputation for stratospheric prices, ferreting out scores of moderately-priced options in lodgings, meals, attractions, entertainment and more.
Like all Easy Guides, this annually-researched and popular best-seller is "Quick to Read, Light to Carry"—and colorfully written.
Fully updated yearly, and printed in large, easy-to-read type, the book contains:
Handy pull-out map and bulleted maps throughout
Self-guided walking tours
Star ratings that take value into account, and will help you find the right hotels, restaurants, nightspots and shops for you, in all price ranges
Subway information for every listing in the guide, to help you get around quickly and easily
Opinionated advice on what to see and what to skip
Insightful discussions of New York’s history and culture
16-page photo guide with vibrant photographs
