The must-visit, must-see travel list given to you by the New Yorker friend you wish you had. Charmingly illustrated throughout, this practical guide transports readers to discover an insider's view of the Big Apple. Vibrant watercolors illustrate destinations of the architectural marvels, cultural hubs, food and drink spots, and music venues that make New York so exiting. Cultural musings, accessible histories, anecdotes, and informative details accompany the illustrations throughout, making this volume as practical as it is beautiful.

Interweaved throughout are insider guides to: how to eat like a New Yorker, in the city's authentic ethnic food neighborhoods; explore the city's most beautiful parks and gardens; navigate transit like a true New Yorker via ferry, subway, and bike; visit some of NYC's most iconic TV and film locations; as well as guides to identifying the city's skyline and bridges.
