The newly updated and revised National Geographic Traveler: New York gives you every tool you need to plan a trip to this incredibly varied and vibrant city. From exploring Manhattan's most innovative and greenest buildings to the best chance for a U2 sighting at soul food restaurants in Harlem to trendy, fashionable TriBeCa to a splashy new feature on bohemian-chic Chelsea and the High Line to the Empire State Building, the Museum of Modern Art in midtown Manhattan, and getting around on Citi Bike, National Geographic guides you to the best known sights, and lesser known ones as well. Illustrated with 120 vivid photographs and 21 detailed, full-color maps, the guide includes a detailed introduction to New York's history and culture and in-depth explorations of each of the city's neighborhoods. Additional features include Insider Tips from National Geographic and local experts to favorite or little known sites and events, as well as dozens of sidebars highlighting experiences that allow the visitor to truly get inside the local culture, such as where to get the best farm-to-table food and the best place to shop for vinyl records in Manhattan. A hefty Travelwise section showcasing hand-picked hotels and restaurants rounds out this must-have book for anyone planning a trip to NYC. Aimed at active travelers who want authentic, enriching, cultural experiences and expert advice from a trustworthy source, National Geographic Travelers provide ways for people to experience a place rather than just visit, and give the true feel of each destination not easily found online.
