Frommer's EasyGuide to New York City 2017 (Easy Guides)

Author: Pauline Frommer
Price: $16.95
Binding: Paperback
Description: 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 three 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
- Exact prices and subway directions for every listing in the book, so there are never any nasty surprises
- 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, at the front of the book plus black and white photos throughout

New York: Monocle Travel Guide (Monocle Travel Guides)

New York: Monocle Travel Guide (Monocle Travel Guides)

Author: Monocle
Price: $15.00
Binding: Hardcover
Description: The definitive travel guides that make you feel like a local wherever you go. Monoclemagazine covers the world with its network of bureaus (New York, Toronto, Zurich, Hong Kong, Istanbul, Tokyo, Singapore), its more than 30 dedicated correspondents based from Beirut to Bogota, Sao Paulo to Stolkholm, and its team of on-the-road reporters based out of its headquarters in London. Monocle-the magazine that covers urbanism and the city design like no other-knows about the hidden gems in all the great cities. It also knows where to take an ambassador for breakfast, an on-the-go businessman for a late night cocktail, or where to get an astute concierge at ungodly hours. Its deep understanding of cities and all they have to offer has been compiled in the new Monocle Travel Guides. Launching this spring with editions for London and Tokyo, followed by New York and Hong Kong, these beautiful books reveal the Monocle team's favorite places, from the ideal route for an early morning run to the best spots for independent retail. Aimed at people who do not want to be tourists but rather feel like locals when they travel, these are books for those who want to mix the classic with the contemporary, want to get beyond the cliches, and know they can get a feel for a city even if they only have a few days. And they are full of surprises and quirks: the books will guide you to a grand hotel but also to a cozy two-star, and will leave you drinking in a local corner bar or being served by a great waiter who knows his craft-while being wary of pushing you into the newest, hippest, soulless bar. Created by the Monocle design team, these authoritative guides will be trim enough to drop into your pocket and wise enough to stay by your side throughout your travels.[more]
