Not for Tourists Guide to Philadelphia 2011, half anti-guidebook, half urban manual, is the ultimate little black book. It reveals everything from the best parks, art galleries and cultural landmarks, to movie theatres, shopping and restaurants. Meticulously researched and written by folks who actually live there, NFT presents the good, bad and downright hideous. Whether you've called Philadelphia your home for decades or just arrived last night, you ignore at your peril this new 2011 edition with its caustic neighbourhood summaries and refreshing, politically incorrect descriptions. In nearly 300 pages of glorious content, this survival handbook features simply everywhere, from Center City West and recently revamped East Passyunk, to gritty Strawberry Mansion and quaint Chestnut Hill in the north west, also covering the parks, colleges and universities, sports grounds and train stations. Designed for street-savvy locals, commuters, business travellers, and yes, tourists, NFT Philadelphia includes a highly graphical map for every neighbourhood featured. User-friendly map icons highlight everything from liquor stores, supermarkets and coffee shops, to gas stations, gyms, banks, post offices, pharmacies and more. So if you're new to the area, meeting friends in an unfamiliar part of the city or find yourself off the beaten track, NFT is a must-have resource. But NFT doesn't waste your time by serving up five zillion options just because they're in a database: contributors have gone back to eat, drink, dance and shop their way through last year's listings to check that they're still worth knowing.
