MY THOUGHTS:

Check back in May for a more detailed review of New York: Pocket Map & Guide. I am going to New York in May and that is when I plan on using my travel guide.

This is a great little travel guide that you can shove in your purse, pocket or back pack and not worry about it taking up alot of space.

When you first open the guide you notice a map of Manhattan and each area is broken down by colors and the page numbers of where to look in the book. Then within each section you will see a little map of the area that is labelled pretty well. You will also find sights at a glance and a brief description of the sites, places to eat and places to shop.

Also include with the book is a map. What I love about the map is that each area is color coded to match the book so you know what is where. The map is also a great size roughly a little bigger then 8×10. Nothing worse then being in the middle of a street with a huge map.

There is also a map if the Manhattan Subway should you need to use it instead of taxi’s all the time. Looking at it, it seems pretty straightforward and easy to follow.

Thanks to DK Pusblishing for sending me this great travel book and I am really looking forward to using it in May.
