A colorful and detailed guide for anyone who wants to get the most out of the city.

This brand-new guide is boldly redesigned where no NFT has gone before, offering a quick snapshot of each neighborhood from the Lower East Side and Greenwich Village to Harlem and Inwood in a colorful and stylish layout. Start flipping through and you’ll immediately notice something very different from the NFT classic.

The book includes everything from restaurants, bars, shopping, and theater to information on hotels, airports, banks, transportation, and landmarks. Need to find the best pizza places around?

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Extremely Disappointed -- don't waste your money When I first bought a "Not for Tourists" NYC book in 2010, I was extremely happy with it. However, this brand new "illustrated" edition with a larger format has been published before it was carefully edited; it has glaring errors and omissions! I purchased it for some young friends to use on their first trip to NYC, thinking that the larger format/larger maps would be user-friendly for them. Unfortunately, I can't trust that the book won't make them frustrated. After I received the book and skimmed through it for 10 minutes, I was shocked to find glaring errors on maps I stopped to look at! For example, Carnegie Hall is labelled incorrectly on Map 12 (p. 30), and Vinegar Hill is labelled incorrectly on Map 30 (p. 66). The High Line, which appropriately received two pages of written introduction, refers readers to Map 8 for its location-- but the High Line is missing from Map 8! I have stop looking at the book because I am sure there are more errors.... Don't waste your money on this "new" publication.
