Written by three New Yorkers with three opinionated takes on the city they love, this guide will help you navigate your way like a local.
From expanded coverage of emerging neighborhoods, a special chapter dedicated to booming Brooklyn and the multi-ethnic flavor of the Outer Boroughs, to the arts sections and dedicated music, food, architecture chapters, the Big Apple's definitive guide for independent travelers includes something for everyone--from the quirky to the classic.
