This opening fold-out contains a general map of New York to help you visualize the 8 large districts discussed in this guide, and 4 pages of valuable information, handy tips and useful addresses.

Discover New York through 8 districts and 8 maps

Downtown
Lower East Side/ East Village
SoHo/ Greenwich Village/ Chelsea/ TriBeCa
Midtown East
Times Square/ Theater District
Upper East Side
Upper West Side
Central Park/ Harlem

For each district there is a double-page of addresses (restaurants — listed in ascending order of price — cafés, bars, tearooms, music venues and stores) followed by a fold-out map for the relevant area with the essential places to see (indicated on the map by a star *). These places are by no means all that New York has to offer but to us they are unmissable. The grid-referencing system (A B2) makes it easy for you to pinpoint addresses quickly on the map.

Transportation and hotels in New York
The last fold-out consists of a transportation map and 4 pages of practical information that include a selection of hotels.

A thematic index lists all the sites and addresses featured in this guide.

Customer Reviews of Knopf Mapguides: New York: The City In Section-by-section Maps

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent layout Amazingly well-designed. Just exactly what I wanted. Small, compact, sturdy thick paper, divided into neighbourhoods. Print big enough that I can actually read the maps! Contains small bits of info about famous attractions, including location on map. The only part that I didn't find particularly useful was the restaurant and store section on the inside of the maps. Were these paid ads from these places? They seem kind of arbitrary and will no doubt go out of date soon. If they aren't paid, and are just the editor's picks, I'd prefer to see more info about permanent attractions on these pages instead. However, if they ARE paid ads, and they help to keep the price of this very cheap booklet down, then I say that's fine. I can live with the loss of 2 pages on each pull out section. Not a big deal.

Editorial Reviews

The Washington Post says, “The map guide lets you be inconspicuous: it’s as small and light as a novella, and its flip-out maps could pass as a flyer to a cool club.”“Make sure you never lose your way in a strange city. Each of the Knopf MapGuides captures its city’s pith in a package as small as a passport wallet…”– Real Simple“Knopf MapGuides are handy, practical and perfect for those of us who are slightly impaired when it comes to map-reading. You don’t have to search a huge crackling sheet with a microscopic index for one of 10,000 dots on the map…The extraordinary quality of the books’ beautiful hues and heavy paper also give these $8.95 guides an evocative quality that stands apart from the glossy, garish look of most travel books.” – Marin Independent Journal“A good, handy portable item for a quick trip” – San Francisco Chronicle“We love Knopf’s smart new map guides.” – Travel & Leisure
