New York


Empire State Building:
Empire State Building
Sometimes known as "The Big Apple" or "The City That Never Sleeps", New York is both the most populous city in the USA, as well as a leading center of business, commerce, finance and media. The city, which is often referred to as "New York City", in order to distinguish it from the state it is in (also called "New York", but often referred to as "New York State"), as of 2004, had an estimated population of 8,104,079. The city is part of a large metropolitan area, and the combined city/metropolitan population exceeds 18.7 million.

New York City is made up of five boroughs (each of which currently corresponds to a county in New York State), and hence another nickname of the city is "The Five Boroughs". The five boroughs are: The Bronx (Bronx County), Brooklyn (Kings County), Manhattan (New York County), Queens (Queens County) and Staten Island (Richmond County).

There are many famous buildings and sights in New York, especially in Manhattan. Some buildings to look out for, include the Chrysler Building, the Empire State Building, the Flatiron Building and the United Nations Building. When you visit New York, you'll also want to be sure to see Central Park, Times Square, Chinatown, Little Italy, and, of course, the Statue of Liberty. Additionally, there are many wonderful museums in New York, some truly excellent shopping, some of the world's best theater in the Broadway area, not to mention the neighborhoods of Greenwich Village and SoHo which are well known for the artists and bohemians among their residents.

Product 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.

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
