ON SALE FOR TRAVEL SEASON! This timeless, ground-breaking NYC guidebook takes an innovative approach to exploring the city with a highly visual map-based format. Unlike most other travel guides, “Knowing Where You’re Going: New York City won’t go “out of date”, because it focuses on shopping, dining, and nightlife ‘streets’ in each neighborhood, rather than the specific businesses themselves. Every neighborhood in New York City is its own microcosm, with its own “restaurant row”, “shopping district”, etc. Restaurants and shops may come and go, but the areas that attract these establishments remain virtually the same over time. Every neighborhood in Manhattan is covered in detail, with easy-to-read maps that feature the key streets. Shopping, dining, and nightlife districts are highlighted in full color to plan either a shopping or dining excursion – no more wondering what’s around the next corner or feeling you’ve missed out on anything the neighborhood has to offer. The maps allow the reader to understand the layout of each neighborhood at a glance. Neighborhood attractions, seasonal events, points of interest, parking, and mass transportation options are all clearly designated. This book even takes the stress out of finding your way underground by offering detailed diagrams of some of New York’s most confusing subway stations – Penn Station, Grand Central Terminal, Times Square Station, and many more. Corridors, stairways, train platforms, mezzanines, and entrances/exits are all laid out in relation to the streets and buildings above. In addition, this guidebook also features useful information regarding getting around the city by car, taxi, bus, subway, as well as on foot. The clarity and level of detail in the maps is unprecedented for a handheld guidebook, but never feels cluttered. Even the city parks are mapped out, depicting paths, athletic fields, points of interest, and restrooms. Your perfect companion for exploring the neighborhoods of Manhattan!
