Nice, but not perfect 23 octobre 2012
Par Paper or Kindle - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Commentaire client Vine pour produit gratuit ( De quoi s'agit-il? )
I've always enjoyed the Lonely Planet guides, which are friendly, interesting and updated regularly. I was a little disappointed in this one, which deals with my home town. It has excellent maps, and a great pull-out map that you can use if carrying a book is just too much trouble. But, like too many guides to The Big Apple, it focuses on the core and doesn't offer enough coverage of the outer boroughs. It has a little bit about Queens and Brooklyn, but the Bronx is given less than a page and Staten Island seems to be MIA. The good news is that addresses, phone numbers and websites are given for most places. The meh news is that some of the information is not completely accurate, which makes me wonder just how carefully the author researched or fact-checked. For example, The Strand, a marvelous used bookstore, is given some attention, but the description is partly out of date. Yes, it used to have enormous aisles of half-priced reviewer's copies that took up half the basement, but they were cropped back to just a few aisles. It's kind of hard to miss this change. Also, though the book notes that The Strand buys back books, it states that this is done on weekdays, but it is also done on Saturdays. My advice: this is a useful guide, but check the websites or phone to make sure the information is correct before you head out to enjoy your trip.

Lonely Planet's NYC Guide: Reasonable for short-term visitors 10 novembre 2012
Par John Williamson - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Commentaire client Vine pour produit gratuit ( De quoi s'agit-il? )
Lonely Planet has come a long way since their first title, "Across Asia on the Cheap," which was was written and published in the mid 1970s by Tony and Maureen Wheeler. Over the years, their audience has slowly changed from budget-conscious backpackers to be geared to more affluent mainstream travelers, especially since BBC began their acquisition of Lonely Planet about five years ago. Last year, Lonely Planet started their new guidebook format, which has been extended to most of the current editions, including this one. Their presence on the Web is quite strong.

For some, Lonely Planet's New York City (City Guide) will represent a radical and perhaps unwanted change from the early days. For others, including this reader, it's a better and easier to follow format, an example of a product that has analyzed the competition and made the changes to hold their position as the largest travel guide book publisher in the world, as they claim to be.

Likes:

+ Maps; plenty of them, all in color, and placed logically throughout the book
+ Large pull-out map in the back; folds out so that it doesn't have to be removed
+ Compact size; 5 x 0.9 x 7.8 inches, fits easily in a camera bag or day bag
+ Walking tours; short-term visitors will appreciate these
+ Restaurant suggestions; better than some of the sites on the 'Net

Dislikes:

- Incomplete info; some of it is inaccurate

New York City is a great place to visit, even if for just a few days or for repeat and long-term visitors. The authors have done a credible job of putting together a usable book that's perhaps best suited for the short-term visitor who is looking for a fast way to capture the highlights of this city and perhaps take a few walking tours during a visit. The 'Plan Your Trip' and 'Explore New York City' sections in the beginning will be useful for first-time visitors, as will the 'New York City's Top 16' chapter in the very beginning. The book offers color coded sections which will make it very easy for the visitor to access.

The authors offer suggestions in many prices of where to eat, and most of these are good, and frequently better than many of the shill reviews that one finds on the 'Net today. But there were certain gaps that this part-time resident takes issue with. For example, on page 114 they list the famous Katz's Delicatessen, which was where one of the most memorable scenes from the 1989 film "When Harry Met Sally" was filmed. For lovers of pastrami on rye, it's worth a visit, but no mention at all is made of the 2nd Avenue Deli on East 33rd Street, which offers even better food and is a true favorite of many locals for years. The listing for the iconic Strand Book Store on page 154, the NYC book-lovers' treasure trove with it's "18 miles of books" has certain inaccuracies, and there are a few others like this in the book, but it's better to focus on what the book offers instead of what it lacks.

This is a well organized 456-page guide, and it's a solid, worthy choice for the first-time visitor, and it has a decent index to help find everything from places to shop, sports & activities, places to eat and more, but there are other titles that should be added to the books that a frequent traveler or local resident may wish to consider. Frommer's New York City 2012 (or its newer version) might be a good addition to this Lonely Planet title for those who plan frequent visits, or for a local resident who wished to expand his or her horizons.

New York City is a great place to visit in any season, and the New York City (City Guide) is a decent product for out of town visitors with a limited time to spend here. Among the books available here for those planning a trip to NYC, this is a good one if you get past some of the small inaccuracies found here, and that's what the phone or the 'Net is good for. The upgraded Lonely Planet format is quite good, and this one is easily recommended for short-term visitors.

A book about Manhattan with other boroughs mentioned, kind of. 21 janvier 2013
Par Nick - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Commentaire client Vine pour produit gratuit ( De quoi s'agit-il? )
Lonely Planet guides tend to be hit or miss lately. LP's New York City is a bit of a disappointment since it focuses on Manhattan primarily, with only a bit of Queens or Brooklyn. In a way, this book is good if you've got a few days in NYC and don't plan on venturing out across the river, but it's a bit of a disappointment for a guidebook series that touts themselves as a deep dive into the city with lots of information.

The LP design is pretty impressive - lots of bright color, nice photos and a handy pull-out map. If I had a limited amount of time in NYC and wanted to maximize it, then this book would be pretty awesome - especially if you're a fan of LP's books.

Unfortunately, for me as someone who has been to NYC a few times, I'm not sure if this book would do it for me. Next time I visit I want to spend more time off Manhattan in Queens or Brooklyn. Other than the basics, this book doesn't dive too much into them.

Note: Other reviewers have mentioned that there's inaccuracies in this book. I haven't noticed because I haven't spot checked. Unfortunately I think this is more of a growing trend when it comes to LP titles. If anything, double check via phone or web to see if they're still around and the hours haven't changed.

Good, solid guide to NYC, much better than the Frommers guide 19 avril 2013
Par Richard C. Yeh - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Commentaire client Vine pour produit gratuit ( De quoi s'agit-il? )
I like this guide a lot. I think it has been well-designed from a usability perspective.

Within the first 50 pages, there are topical listings of recommended attractions. The next 200 pages focus on specific areas in Manhattan. Brooklyn and Queens get 50 pages. Within these pages, each section has a blurb, listing of sights, places to eat, and entertainment. The maps in this section describe neighborhood walks.

There is a separate 25-page section on accommodations --- which I think is much better than the Frommers placement within each neighborhood, because when you visit New York City, the public transportation system greatly expands your walking-distance radius.

Then 30 pages on history, a 15-page handy reference list, and then 30 pages of maps.

I want to highlight the maps. In the Frommers guide, the maps are only helpful for answering: I know the name of something, now where is it? The Lonely Planet maps have that, and the color coded numbered icons and topical grouping allow you also to answer: I am here, what's around me that's interesting (or where I can eat)? And also, I want to eat/drink/sightsee (do a general activity instead of visit a specific landmark), where should I go?

As other reviewers have noted, some information is out of date or wrong. For example, the taxi fare between Manhattan and JFK in both directions has been a flat rate for many years now. In 2012, the rate was increased to $52 plus a $0.50 surcharge plus tolls (if you take any tunnels or the RFK bridge); but the book (published August 2012) still says $45.

Never been to NYC? This is a really smart newbie's guide 24 mars 2013
Par Dom Miliano - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Commentaire client Vine pour produit gratuit ( De quoi s'agit-il? )
I grew up within sight of NYC. My family didn't own a car but we were only one bus (or ferry ride) into the Big Apple so we shopped, went to museums, enjoyed movies and tucked into great ethnic food from Chinatown to Coney Island. For that reason, it takes a lot for a local guide book to impress me. My basic ruler is simple - the guide book must touch all of the high points - lure the reader to the must-see sights, the big museums, identify the key landmarks and clearly outline walking tours to the significant neighborhoods. This Lonely Planet guide hits these perfectly with the opening section full of well written teasers called the top 16. It starts with the "big dog" - Central Park, takes the reader to the iconic skyscrapers of mid-town, explains the live theater offerings including Broadway and the lure of the equally fascinating off-Broadway and off-off-Broadway, temps the taste buds with the City's many ethnic eating possibilities and continues through museums, shopping, sports, walking tours, Brooklyn, Queens, Jazz, late night entertainment and Times Square. Each topic ends with the page reference number for quick access on the road or in-hotel planning. Quick, clever and helpful.

Inside each section, they start with a map, some local facts, a list of top things to do and see, how to get there by subway or bus, recommended eating and drinking establishments and even recommended shopping. I delved deeply into the Greenwich Village and Chelsea section - two of my favorite of the micro neighborhoods in NYC. They listed in the "best" one of my favorite eateries - Tartine and two of the best book stores in the City - The Strand and Three Lives & Company, so paraphrasing Bill Murray in Caddyshack - they got that going for them, which is nice... The walking tours they offer hit the historic spots but also touche on (albeit dated) pop culture with references to the TV shows Sex and the City and Friends.

Their food suggestions have some of the always reliable restaurants that I personally like - Otto, Gotham Bar & Grill and Tartine. Lonely Planet's writers also found a few I have not tried but will soon based on their suggestions - REDFARM and Joe's Pizza seem like musts. Their shopping suggestions also show strong local knowledge - from MXYPLYZYK, to Forbidden Planet - Flight 001 to Bucker - Murray's Cheese to McNulty's and Pleasure Chest to Destination. So many stores, so little time,. That means having a local sneak you the 411 makes the life of the short-time visitor more productive.

All in all, the Lonely Planet guide to NYC is a good resource for the vacationer and even for the seasoned local. It is a little hipper than the typical guide book with well researched advice, suggestions and insights. It also dares to send the reader on virtual trips outside the confines of Manhattan to far flung Queens, Brooklyn and even upstate.

If you are young or young at heart and want to engage in armchair travel or need a smart, hip travel companion, you would be hard pressed to find a better resource than this new edition.

Recommended.
