  1. Absolutely What I Was Looking For ! Hi Melissa! Thank you so much for this guide. My bf and I are coming from Australia to New York for the first time this July and this is absolutely what I was looking for in terms of “need to know information”. You have a done a great job It practically has taken all the stress out of planning what we are going to do and will make sure we don’t miss anything. So thank you.

  2. So Much More Than I Expected! Thanks Melissa, there is a lot info in your guide that would have taken me awhile to find on my own, if ever !

  3. Melissa – I have successfully downloaded both the book and the bonus maps and I am very impressed with all the research you did. I am not a novice to New York, but I know that this time I will be very well-prepared for the visit thanks to you! I can’t wait! Thank you for putting this book together. Going to go read some more about New York now!!

  4. Melissa,

    Thank you for your hard work in compiling this guide! It has been a great resource for me as I plan our first annual “girls trip to New York”! I have been to New York before but always with someone who knew what they were doing! This guide will help me be the “leader” this time! Thank you again for making it so easy to navigate your beautiful city!!


  5. Great to have everything all in one place instead of needing to search the internet. Maps are great to have so I can plan my trip and won’t need to waste time wandering around looking for something.

  6. I purchased the package yesterday. I want to say that it is extremely helpful. Thank you for putting together such a great package.
    – Paula

  7. Hi Melissa,

    Three of us are going to NY in June. We are currently in the planning stage of mapping out our days. Your guide has provided us with good information on different dining options. I like how you have it broken down by area, that is a big help.


  8. This guide was very comprehensive. I purchased mostly for the maps, but I could have saved a lot of time if I found you first. A lot of your maps were things I had found free on other sites, but you had everything in one place. Like the summaries in the guide of each area. I am taking a group of students there and need to compile a “cheat sheet” for our trip for out teacher chaperones and this will help. – Anita, Las Vegas

  9. Good evening Melissa:

    We have just downloaded the NYC Insider Maps and Guide. Our family will be travelling to your fabulous city from Sydney, Australia in September, so I have been researching and looking for this concise information for the past couple of months. I had even looked at ordering a well-known travel guide book… however luckily for us, I came to your website (looking for NYC maps) last week and have today ordered your maps and guides.

    This will help us immensely as we are definitely after a ‘live-like-a-New-Yorker’ experience rather than bumble around like a typical tourist for our 12 day stay. Your tips, hints and information are easy to absorb and make our plans from – thank you. I look forward to seeing the Bonus Travel guide also and the weekly Newsletters.

    Kindest Regards,
    Michelle & Justin

  10. My daughter and I will be traveling to NYC in a week. We were looking for simple maps so we could plot our days. That is how we found your site. And we are so very happy we did! This is the type of information we were looking for. I love how you have everything by neighborhood. We can just take that page with us when we go and have everything at our fingertips. As you can imagine, it can be very overwhelming. Thank you for making it not so daunting!

  11. Hi Melissa! We loved your New York Insider Print Guide – so much information, and so much to see and do. It has been invaluable in helping us plan our 4 days in your fine city, but we will barely scratch the surface in that time. Only 2 days now until we leave for the USA and the excitement is building.

    Kind regards,

  12. The guides are extremely helpful. My Wife and I plan on three days in New York in September and with such limited time we’ve being trying to optimize our New York experience. Your “one stop shop” has not only saved us a lot of time and money in research but will serve to underwrite our trip, providing us with the “biggest bang” for our dollar when we hit the tarmac at JFK Airport in September. Great product! Many thanks.

  13. Hi Melissa,

    I was excited to see a guide with everything in one place. We have short notice for travel and feel that your guide will be very helpful.

    Thank you!

  14. Really like the layout and content of your guide Melissa! Looking forward to putting it to good use on our first visit to NYC in November! Thanks, Dave

  15. Hi, Melissa. I wanted to thank you for the Insiders Guide you created. The maps are extremely helpful, as are the transit tips that you have throughout and the breakdowns of each neighborhood. I’ve been to NYC a few times before, but it’s been a while and your guide is like a refresher course. Thank you for creating it. I’m not sure what else there is to add in the Bonus, but I’m curious now. Thanks again! – Jen White

  16. Melissa,

    I have to say I thought I was wasting my money when I brought your guides, but was I surprised. They are definitely worth the price. Your site is an excellent place to start when planning a trip to New York. Yes, you can find this information on the internet by spending hours visiting all the different web sites, but why do that when you can just come here and get your guides. My wife took one look at your guides and said, “Wow, I wasted several days getting this same information and here it is, all in these guides.” So I’m glad I stumbled across your site, because your guides and the other information on your site will be a big help in planning our upcoming trip to New York City in December.

  17. REALLY??? This is a lifesaver! I’m too ADD-riddled to ever have been able to compile all this info in a useful way. Thanks to these tools, our 3 short days in NYC will be spent just how we want with no time wasted. I really can’t say enough good things. To anyone on the fence about this purchase…it truly is the best $20 you can spend and will probably save you way more than that in time alone.

  18. Hi Melissa,

    You’ve definitely put a lot of work into creating both the book and bonus maps. I can’t wait to take all my information to New York this December and feel like I know what I’m doing. Thanks for making me feel like the “Leader of the Pack”!

  19. Thanks, Melissa! I just printed out your guide and love it! My boyfriend and I are heading to NYC for 5 days on Saturday. I go to NYC a lot and am grateful I found your guide. It is GREAT! Thanks so much! – Lindsay

  20. Thanks Melissa. Very well put together. We are coming over later this winter. Weather here is 38C – a bit warmer than NY weather at the moment. The information is well laid out and all in one place. Excellent work and easy to read. All the tips and maps are great. Love the individual section maps and info for each area in Manhattan.
    Many Thanks, Wayne, Australia

  21. The NYC Insider Guide seems to be a very handy tool for me, as I’ll have my first experience in NYC during next fall and I had no idea of many of the tips given in this guide in order to have the greatest time ever in the Big Apple. Thanks for helping me planning my trip.

    Sincerely, Thiago.

  22. OMG, you have written exactly what I was looking for!! Thank you so much!! Absolutely perfect!!!! Please don’t take a trip to New York without this guide!!!!

  23. Wow…after so much web search!!! At last some great tips, info maps etc …all in one!!! We will now be so ready for NYC…Thanx to you Melissa!!!

  24. Hi Melissa:

    I just printed off the guide packet. I am so excited!! My daughter is a senior in high school and she chose NYC as her senior spring break!! Your guide looks to be the perfect solution to our trip-planning and comfort in The Big Apple. We can hardly wait!

    Thank you for putting together such a wonderful guide.
    – Jennifer

  25. Melissa,
    These NYC resources are just terrific – perfect for my iPad and my husband’s iPhone 6. Graphics are of high quality, and you’ve compiled all kinds of information and tips for tourists. Thank you!

  26. Awesome guide. I was looking for something I can give to a group of parents going to NYC for the first time. Very very helpful!!


  27. HI Melissa,

    I just purchased your guide as i was trying to make sense of the huge variety of attractions that NYC has to offer a girl from Melbourne Australia. It’s great that you’ve been able able to clearly break down all of the information. I have been looking at websites for days trying to make sense of it all!

    I really like that you have clearly shown where all of the areas of NYC are so its easy to see what is where – ie what is close to each other and can be grouped together when (unfortunately!) we will only have a finite time. A great perspective for people who have never been to NYC.

    We’ll be using your guide as a base – thanks for the tip re HopStop too – I’m sure that will prove invaluable!! A small line about how to get a ticket would be great – vending machines inside the subway I believe …

    Its a little hard to fully evaluate the guide without putting it into full practice. I’m very very much looking forward to visiting your amazing city!!!!!

    Lorna 🙂

  28. Hi Melissa:

    I just received the NYC Insider Print Guide, and I can’t wait to use this to help prepare me for my trip to NY in a few weeks. Thank you for providing such a wonderful resource – you’ve saved me hours of researching this information by myself!


  29. This guide book is such a gift! It is perfect & will allow me to explore all of NYC in my upcoming trip! Thank you much for providing this service! I’m so excited and less confused thanks to the NYC Guide! I’m going to NYC in couple weeks and this will help me out tremendously! Thank you very much!!!

  30. Dear Melissa,

    Thank you very much für the NYC Insider Guide! I find it very helpful, in particular the overviews by neighbourhood. Thanks for putting this Information together!!!

    Kind regards,

  31. Hi Melissa,
    This has helped us a lot .Me and my friend surprised our our 15 year old daughters with a trip to NYC in June. It is our first time. I am happy I stumbled across your Insider Guide. I’m still very confused about the Statue of Liberty do you pay or do you not have to pay? Maybe you could explain that in your guide. Also the MOMA do you pay to get into it if you have bought one of the attraction passes. The NY City pass say’s you don’t but from what I read on Trip Advisor you do.
    It is a very useful tool
    Thank You, Jody

    Hi Jody:
    Thanks so much for your feedback on our Printable Guide. Your Statue of Liberty question is clearly answered on our site (and in the guide on the Attractions Pass Comparison page). CityPASS no longer covers MoMA admission (starting in 2015, you get a choice of 9-11 Museum or Intrepid Museums). Hope that helps!


  32. Excellent! We had been to NYC several times before I happened upon this website and had a nice time, BUT – we spent so much time trying to figure out where we were going that before we knew it, it was time to leave. This print guide and website helped us in so many ways on our last trip! We were able to move around the City like we knew what we were doing (thank you Melissa!). We took a couple with us that had never been to NYC, and thanks to this EXCELLENT guide, they can’t wait to go back in September with us! WELL DONE!

  33. Melissa,
    My compliments! A very comprehensive and complete for those of us who need help getting around and to advise others who plan to visit the Big Apple soon.
    So much more than I had originally expected when your site had come up off of my Google search. Keep up the excellent work. – Lawrence

  34. We are coming to New York shortly and thought I would just find info online, when I found your insiders guide it saved me a lot of time and effort, you have it all in one place. Well done.

  35. Thanks a lot for the information provided in the guide. It shows everything an outsider needs to “survive” NYC. It will for sure give me a lot of support while we vacation there. Keep it up with the excellent website. Cheers!

  36. I was so excited to find your guide online. I am getting ready to visit NYC with my husband and granddaughter and you have put everything I need in one quick guide. Thank you very much for all the effort you have put into this.

  37. I read over the guide and the bonus maps and I thought they were great as far as things to do, places to eat and the guide broken up into areas. The only criticism is that I wished the maps were larger print. I’m 59 and its hard for me to see very small writing or numbers. – Sharon

  38. I’m so glad I found the NYC Insider Guide during my internet search! I was trying to do what you have done with the guide – a one-stop-shop for maps, attractions to see, and restaurants to eat in, organized by neighborhoods in Manhattan. My family and I are traveling there next week and I wanted to plan our itinerary ahead of time since we have just 5 days in the city and so much to see! We are going to do a lot of walking and exploring while we are in the city and the information you’ve provided about the subways, stops, etc. will prove useful, I’m sure.

  39. Excellent guide! I am traveling for the first time to New York City in September and this guide will help me not miss out all the great attractions NYC has to offer.

  40. I was so excited to find your guide online. I am getting ready to visit NYC with my husband, mother, sister and niece. We are going to Ground Zero and other iconic places. Using the guide I was able to locate a hotel across the street from the 9-11 Memorial. Your guide has put everything I could possibly need in one quick guide for a successful trip. Thank you very much for all the effort you have put into this collection of information making it possible to plan ahead.

  41. I used to live in Manhattan and wish that I’d had this guide when I was lived there! The depth of information is incredible and well worth the small amount spent. I’ll use this again and again. Not only will it make my time in NYC better, but it will save me $$ as well!

  42. I downloaded the guide & maps and they have so much useful information! I’m getting ready for our visit in a couple of weeks and the guide will be so helpful in planning my trip. There is so many time saving tips in it. I am looking forward to receiving the FREE BONUS 35-Page New York City Travel Guide.

    Thank you so much!

  43. Hi Melissa,

    This is very helpful information, and the maps are great! My husband and going to New York in December to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary!

    Thanks, Diana

  44. Melissa,
    I love NYC and have been quite a few times. I always try to review street and train maps before I go so I will not be totally lost upon arrival. While searching around I found your website and I purchased your Insider Guide and Maps. It was so helpful to have a nice review of the areas and neighborhoods while on the flight to NY. The guide was great and you did a very nice job putting it all together. Anyone going to NY for the first time, you need a game plan and an agenda…otherwise you really do end up wandering aimlessly because it can be very overwhelming. Thanks for the effort you put into your guides and your website!

  45. Wonderful Idea. I love your book! It brings together all the information, tips and tricks that any traveller to NYC needs. The maps, the ‘tips and tricks’ and price guides are really neat. I will be certainly using it on my trip there.

    All the best.


  46. Melissa,
    I love NYC and have been there a couple of times. This year I’ll be there for Chiristmas… I purchased your Insider Guide and Maps. It was helpful. I think this guide is great. Thank you for your great job and effort…

  47. Lots of effort and time went into this guide. Thanks so much. Will be rereading this several times before I get a good grasp of city. From a small city compared to NYC.

  48. Great Guide! Thank you for the New York City Insider Guide. I love all the maps, restaurant guides, list of free activities, and insider tips. I am so happy to get this guide and I know my trip to NYC will be a lot easier to navigate thanks to you.

  49. Reading through your Insider Guide so far is great! So much information I was searching for – like locations and costs of museums. Thanks for putting this together to help out-of-towners like us.

    I am so happy I ran across your website today! I’ve only been to NYC once for just a few hours and we did virtually nothing but a walking tour around Washington Square Park to Chelsea Market (guided by my nephew – an NYU student at the time, now a resident of Brooklyn), then a subway ride down to Ground Zero and a walk to Battery Park. I was so confused and frustrated when we first got to Penn Station, we nearly got back on the train and went back to Jersey (where my son was stationed at the time). I’m looking forward to reading your version of “NYC 101” to help avoid that feeling this time around.

    – Wendy

  50. Planning has never been this easy… This is an amazingly complete guide to NYC. It is making the planning of my NYC trip easy, quick, and fun! The tips and links are priceless and relevant. The maps are plentiful, the transportation information is extremely helpful, and there’s even an itinerary form available for use. So far, I can’t think of anything missing and I will probably save the cost of the guide in time alone. Thanks for a great product!

  51. This guide is PERFECT! L-O-V-E this guide! It’s well thought out, easy to read, easy to follow. Very sensible layout. This will be our 5th trip to NYC and my first few times I was completely lost, so I ended up staying very close to where our bus would pick us up. The last trip my daughter and son-in-law went along and they were a tremendous help. This trip we’re on our own, so needless to say I was very excited to find this website. I’m so excited to use this book – I’ll post again after our trip! Thanks SO much Melissa!

  52. Great Overview of NYC!!! I'm a local New Yorker sending this guide to a friend visiting NYC for first time. Will definitely help him plan what he wants to see instead of me suggesting things. Thanks!

  53. Tremendous Guide to New York City!!!! The maps are amazing and I love all the personalized and useful information you've put into your ebook. It's like having a friend in New York showing me around and looking out for me. What a tremendous resource. Thank You!

  54. Great! Get this Guide! My friend and I just got back from our first trip to NYC. Your guide was GREAT!! We used it everyday. I particularly loved how there were suggestions for each area/neighborhood! That was very useful!

  55. Hello Melissa:
    OMG!! Reading your NYC Insider Guide is like reading a really good novel. This guide came at a perfect time. My family and I will be in NYC in December for a week and I already feel so prepared. Thanks to all your tips, maps and links. I’ve already downloaded the app citymapper! Thank you Melissa!! Best Guide ever! – Selva, Las Vegas, NV

  56. The Insider Guide and Maps are terrific. Thanks so much for compiling user friendly resources for those planning to visit New York City. Thanks again for investing the time to make these resources and provider insider knowledge.
    – Regards, The Duncan Family (Australia)

  57. I have been to NYC many times but got this for my sister as we are going together and it will be her first trip. This guide is very helpful for her to get a feel for where the things she wants to see are located in relation to each other. Love the area breakdowns for food and shopping ideas. Love the discount shopping guide. -Dawn

  58. From what I've seen so far… love this guide. I've looked at several, you've got more info. Can't wait to use it when we arrive this week. – Jean

  59. Dear Melissa,
    I would like to thank you for your guide. I am a frequent traveler, I have been several times in NYC, I have more than one traditional guide of New York, but I really like yours. I have to say that if I would have to figure out out to make a guide I would have thought about something like the Insider Guide. I love the zooms of map sections with easy indications of what to do and I like the practical tips. I will use it soon, as i will be in NY at the end of January!
    Thank you again Melissa!
    Best regards, Matteo, Milan – Italy

  60. We lived in NYC fifty years ago. Wish we would have had this guide then. The information is presented in a very organized way and up to date. Thanks, Mary Lou

  61. Very excited to have found the New York City Insider Guide. Other than planning to see a play, which we already have booked, and seeing a couple of well known tourist attractions, my daughter & I no nothing of NYC. I believe this guide will help us decide what we want to do and what area we want to stay. We are winging our way to NYC in June so this gives us plenty of time to plan things. Love that there is also a Vacation Itinerary Planner included. Thanks so much. – Diane

  62. This guide is great and exactly what I was looking for. This will be a great help on my upcoming trip. The maps and breakdown of each neighborhood is particularly what I was looking for.

  63. I’m a New Yorker an am about to host a Vietnamese tour guide of the highest quality! This is a great guide. He’ll feel so much in charge of his travels around the city with your two guides. As for myself, I learned of new resources from reading the guides. I like it that they are attractively presented, well organized and easy to use with useful, current information.

  64. Your guide is a lifesaver! I purchased it almost a week ago for my upcoming trip after searching on a lark for NYC sample sales. Once I stumbled on your page, I found the resources invaluable. I have done a fair bit of planning in preparation for my ‘real’ first time trip to Manhattan (last time was a shoot in and go back out weekend) and was amazed at how organized and easy this guide was to follow. The map points along with listings are terrific, they even have cross streets for easier navigation.

    I particularly liked the analysis of the various NYC sightseeing passes as well as the authentic highlights, including restaurants and hotels, per neighborhood accompanied by map points. Yesterday, my accommodations fell through (I booked them in December) and I immediately went to this guide and looked up hotels to re-book. Thank you, thank you, triple thank you!

  65. Hi Melissa. We were so excited to receive your NYC Insider Guide! I feel it will truly make planning our trip much easier! I appreciate all the breakdowns for navigating the subway system, the different districts, lists of things to do; places to eat for each and the many different maps. For an out-of-towner, this resource will definitely take a great deal of stress out of planning our trip. THANK YOU!! – Susan

  66. GREAT guide—best on the net! This guide has the best maps of any I could find on the internet! You’ve compiled all the useful info on NYC into one place and made our trip-planning so much easier. Thank you!!!

  67. Im traveling to NY in October to visit and to get married. Im so overwhelmed with the early planning process and your guide book has saved my life! I’m from a small town in northern WI, so I figured I needed all the info I could get. The maps in this guide are perfect! Thank you so much, money well spent.

  68. I enjoyed the book. I liked the way it was laid out. It provided tons of information. It will be invaluable in my trip planning. Loved the printable maps.

  69. The NYC insider guide is just fantastic! Thank you! Written by a New Yorker gives a more honest insight to the city rather than just sticking to the tourist areas. I can’t wait until I visit in a couple of weeks time!

    Many Thanks,

  70. This guide is incredible! I wish I had found it months ago. I like that it has suggested locations (shopping, restaurants and things to do) in each neighborhood. I can plan out days in each area and have activities, lunch, and maybe even dinner while in that area. Thank you so much – you have done an outstanding job covering everything – all in one reference!

  71. I’ve been researching NYC for months (an hour a day on average) and have not found a more complete guide to the area than this. I was overwhelmed in my search, trying to figure out which districts had which attractions/restaurants etc., and how in the world would I plan for each of the 7 days we will be there. This guide is exactly what I needed to get organized and familiar with the area. The street names on the map is hugely helpful so that I can map out how to get around. We have a large group including children and I was feeling very worried about how I would pull this off. Thank you so much for your very user friendly product! I haven’t seen anything yet that you could improve upon, but I will let you know if I find anything. Once again THANK YOU!!!

  72. Thank you so much for the work you have put into this guide. I’ve never been to New York so this has been an amazing help!! Thanks so much – Randi

  73. Hello, Melissa.

    This is the second time I am buying the guide. I wanted to have a fully updated version for going around the city with my Mom who is visiting. It’s such a great tool! Neighborhood by neighborhood… perfect way to explore. Thank you!


  75. Thank you Melissa! What a wonderful asset to my business. My clients will think they have hit the jackpot… I am so excited to try some of these maps out myself…

  76. As always, don’t know what I would do without this guide. And now that my husband has finally agreed to join me on my trip, being able to get the most out of our time in NYC is super important! Thanks so much for your hard work.

  77. Hi! I purchased your NYC Insider Guide Package, and I have examined the contents of the NYC Insider Print Guide as well as the Bonus Maps. I particularly like that the Guide is very consistently organized and easy to follow. The color coding is particularly helpful.

  78. I have received the guide and I realized that there is enough useful and accurate information to plan a very good holidays in NYC. The information goes straight to the point and this guide meets perfectly what I was looking for. Thanks a lot to make my life easier.

  79. I am planning a first timer’s family trip to NYC, leaving in a few weeks. So glad I purchased the NYC Visitor Guide. The guide pulls into one place so much information I’ve been trying to search all over the internet. I love the layout and color coding – very user friendly. Thanks Melissa!!

  80. I wanted to let you know how much I enjoy the insider guide and maps. It is exactly what I was looking for and trying to search the internet for weeks and still did not find even a fraction of what you have in your guide. Even something as simple what direction avenues and streets run was not something I thought of or found any information on but is very important. Exactly what I was looking for. Don’t waste your time researching and trying to find all this information online when you can get it in the insiders guide. Wonderfully put together and extremely helpful. Thank you.

  81. melissa,
    Only had a quick scan through, will read it fully over the next 3 weeks prior to visiting but even the quick read through looks a very good guide. i just spent 3 hours on a spreadsheet putting all the ticket admission prices together. wish i had seen your guide first. i could have saved myself a lot of time.

  82. Thank you so much! This is exactly what I was looking for to plan a trip with my daughter for my 50th Birthday and to knock off the Macy’s Day Parade from my bucket list. If you have any special pointers about being in the area for Thanksgiving I would love to hear them. Looking forward to seeing what the bonus guide has to offer. Thanks again!

  83. This looks AWESOME!! Planning our trip for week after next! I’m excited that 4 gals from Arkansas can’t get lost now using this guide and being able to be planning ahead our fun filled girls trip!! Thank you for putting together all of these great insights!!

  84. I have thoroughly enjoyed reading through the NYC Guide book for planning our trip to NYC in December! It’s been VERY helpful in knowing exactly where things are so we aren’t crossing over paths and that we would have traveled the day before! Thank you VERY much for providing this to others…. much appreciated! I would love a copy of your 35-Page New York City Travel Guide! Thank you, Mary Margaret

  85. Dear Melissa,
    Thank you for the NYC Insider Guide. I printed it and spent a couple of hours studying it with a highlighter. This will be my 15 yo daughter’s first time to New York City and I have not been there in 23 years. We love the one page per neighborhood format. The tip to get the citymapper app is most helpful. We really like your honest comments about places that you like. My one constructive criticism is that $20 seems pricey for a guide that we have to print ourselves. Thanks again, Lori

  86. The NYC Guide is fantastic. So helpful to those who have no idea of how to get around & where everything is in comparison to where you are staying.
    Thanks, Bev

  87. Living in New Jersey, I have been an occasional visitor to Manhattan but have not been knowledgeable about the neighborhoods. At last, a very comprehensive, enjoyable, informative and easy to understand guide. Thank you.
    D.E Fittinger

  88. This printable collection of information & maps is excellent. It places the whole of Manhattan in context while breaking down its boroughs into districts in a way that is manageable and makes sense. I was able to see the places I in which I am interested & quickly see their location in relationship to the rest of Manhattan. Your grouping of places of interest or activities along with their Free & days closed simplified my decision making. Having never been to NYC, I was nevertheless able to design an Itinerary that works for me. The ability to only print the sections I am interested is a vast improvement over carrying a bulky Guidebook. I always buy a Guidebook- sometimes more than one- for my trips.
    This year, I feel comfortable with only this one. Thank you!

  89. This guide is great. I was born and raised in The Bronx New York and my husband and I love the city. We live in New Jersey now but are always in the City. Now, when we have visitors from out of state, we can take them around the city better.

  90. The information provided is exactly what we were looking for to be able to plan our trip this year to NYC!! We are over the moon at all the information and maps we received. Our excitement has grown exponentially since we got our info. Thank you for the thoroughness of your guides! Well worth it!

  91. I am feeling so much more confident regarding getting around the city with the guide! It is our first trip to NYC and this will be with me at all times as my reference. Thank you so much for creating this, it is just what I needed to make changes and add to our itinerary because I can follow the maps. Thank you again!! Respectfully, Kelley and my crazy crew 🙂

  92. Thanks so much for recommending this wonderful guide. It has everything I need for my upcoming trip to New York. I will be a lot less stressed because of this. I recommend it to anyone who is contemplating going to New York. This tells about how to plan so we will not miss any of our places we ant to visit. Once I sat down and looked thru this guide it is truly an exceptional guide to New York City. Thanks for the recommendation. I will recommend it to everyone I know who plans a trip to New York. Thank you so much.

  93. Loving the guide so far! I’ve been studying it for our upcoming trip. My favorite part is that you’ve provided what to see and where to eat in each area! We will be taking our cheat sheets with us as we visit each place! Honestly, I am not sure what you could have done better – it is so detailed, I love it! Maybe your top choice for eats in each area for the foodies? From a local’s point of view? I know we like to know where the locals go when we eat out. But I am sure we will find plenty of yummy places in your guide, so I’m not concerned a bit there! The maps are great too! Very good information. We will be in NYC for 8 days and I know we will be using the guide and maps a lot!

    Thank you for putting all of the great information together – it will make this rural Texan’s visit to the big city much easier! Looking forward to the bonus guide!

    Thank you, Patti, Texas

  94. I am currently planning a trip with 13 other ladies for January 2 – 6, 2020. Your guide highlights many of the things that we are interested in. The subway information will be very useful to get us where we want to go. We will definitely check out the information centers. Do you have any daily itineraries that you could share? – April

  95. Thanks Melissa, I think this will save me a bit of research and will be helpful to print out for walking around manhattan. Dividing it into the different neighbourhoods and different topics is also helpful. I look forward to reviewing the maps next. Defiantly worth the Spend. Cheers from Australia, Helen

  96. Amazing Melissa. This is my second copy! Congratulations for this always excellent guide. I have been living in this area for 18 years, but I still leave the guide as a treat when people come to visit me by their bed. So comprehensive! I look forward to receiving the travel planning guide.
