Author(s): Not for Tourists
The Not For Tourists Guide to New York City is a map-based, neighborhood-by-neighborhood dream guide designed to lighten the load of already street-savvy New Yorkers, commuters, business travelers, and yes, tourists too. Each map is marked with user-friendly icons identifying NFT's favorite picks around town, from essentials to entertainment, and includes invaluable neighborhood descriptions written by locals, highlighting the most important features of each area.
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? NFT has you covered. How about a list of the top vintage clothing stores in the city? We've got that, too. The nearest movie theater, hardware store, or coffee shop-whatever you need, NFT puts it at your fingertips. This pocket-sized book also features:
- A foldout map for subways and buses
- More than 130 city and neighborhood maps
- Details on parks and places
- Listings for arts and entertainment hot spots
It is the indispensable guide to the city. Period.
