NYC Printable Map Guide Book – the Original Guide

First hand, practical, organized New York City information you can download and print with one click is hard to find, so I took the best of this site, added maps, directions and details, and created a Print Guide to New York City.

It wasn’t just me – ALL my lifelong, multi-generational NY friends and family contributed (Best Pizza in NYC? It turned into a war!)

Included in the NYC Printable Map Guide Book

  • A simple, easy-to-read one page overview of NYC including the top 20 attractions and every NYC neighborhood, all mapped on one page, so you immediately know “what is where” and distances between places
  • My own weekly chart of many of the Free Museum Days and Times, along with the free weekly neighborhood tours
  • A current list of the major attraction costs (Adult prices only), so you can budget and see which New York City Pass is right for you, based on your personal itinerary and preferences
  • Detailed maps of every NYC neighborhood, along with top Things to Do and See, my personally recommended restaurants by neighborhood, Shopping, Subways and a few key hotels. If there is a NYC Insider Tip – it’s in there.
  • Central Park Map overview with top areas and sights highlighted
  • Subway map with description of each subway route and tricks and tips for using the subway and getting around
  • A city map of all the NYC Visitor Centers, where you can find thousands of discounts and coupons on everything from tours to Broadway Shows
  • Best of NYC Categories and lists by ALL native New Yorkers! I’ve read what other tourists say on some other websites, and I’m telling you, they missed out on what we REALLY do and eat here! Even I learned A TON of new information just by compiling the guide.
  • Each category is shown by neighborhood, so you always know what is where, with street addresses and cross streets,
  • Best of NYC lists include: Museums, Pizza, Parks, Kid’s Activities, Kids Restaurants, Discount Shopping, Romantic Places, Farmer’s Markets and much more!

“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!”

Note: The guide is current for 2022, but I haven’t redone the video

“This guide is 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!"

NYC Printable Map Guide Book

As far as I can tell, it is THE ONLY downloadable guide to NYC on the internet. If you’ve been looking for answers to questions like:

  • Where is a good printable map of New York City?
  • How far is the Statue of Liberty from the Empire State Building?
  • Where should I eat in Midtown?
  • Where can I print a subway map and how do I use the subway?
  • What is the best way to plan my 2 (or 3, 5 or 10) day vacation so I make the most of my time and money?

The NYC Insider Guide is here to help. Even as a lifelong New Yorker, some of this information was hard for me to find. I looked at a few tourist guides, dozens of websites, made a few calls to Museums and other attractions and used all the great free maps I have just from being in NYC all my life. Then I ate a LOT of pizza, because you can only write about great food for so long before you MUST eat some…yummmmmmm!

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.

Why a Downloadable Guide or E-Book? 

  • Get it RIGHT NOW!
  • Save time and money while you are planning, and all through your vacation. Plus, no shipping costs.
  • Always up to date. If I go to new, great restaurant, it will be in the EBook in a week. The information in hard copy travel guide books is usually at least one year old, often older. In New York City – that’s a lifetime!
  • Get free updates for a year. Guide Book updates are tracked here. Just email anytime within a year of purchase and I’ll send you an updated Guide. So even if your trip is 6 months away, you can start planning now, and get an updated guide right before your trip.
  • It is near impossible to get lost in NYC using this guide. You will always know where you are and how to get somewhere else.
  • Make as many copies as you want. If your group splits for a time during vacation, everyone can have a copy!
  • No need to carry a heavy book while on vacation. You print it on your own 8.5″ x 11″ paper and when you’re here, just take the pages you need for the day. You can write on them, fold them, stick them in your back pocket. Each page in the EBook is the equivalent of 2-4 pages in a hard copy travel guide.
  • Just finished up at the Empire State Building and want to grab the best slice of Pizza in the neighborhood? Or you loved the view so much, you want to grab a cocktail with a skyline view? We got you covered. 

“What a tremendous resource. 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.”-Brad, Austin, TX

What’s Not Included? 

  • The guide covers only Manhattan. It does not include Harlem, Brooklyn, Staten Island, Queens or the Bronx.
  • Phone numbers, hours of operation (opening/closing times of attractions), cash/credit card acceptance, except where noted.
  • Exact restaurant pricing. Exceptionally expensive (over $50/pp) or cheap (less than $10 or free) meals are noted, but the rest are somewhere in between. I do tell you what NY-ers think are the best restaurants.
  • I put in some NY Style addresses, like 53rd and 9th Ave. If you’re there and can’t find what you’re looking for, ask anyone – New Yorkers LOVE to answer questions. More people will be able to help you with NY style addresses than if you said, “1675 Broadway.” Hardly anyone knows addresses in NYC (not even taxi drivers).
  • History, Architecture, Photos. The guide is mostly “just the facts.” The Empire State Building tour tells you how and when it was built. You can also get a supplemental guide, or wait until you are in NYC, where there are several hundred guide choices in the bookstores, as well as dozens of free tourist guides with this information. 

Back to Top of NYC Printable Map Guide Book

What’s the Catch?

Simple. The actual information is available almost anywhere online – you don’t need the NYC Printable Map Guide Book to tell you the Statue of Liberty is in NYC, you already knew that. Much of it is even on this site. However…

No where is it organized and presented to you in this easy-to-follow and print format, with clearly color-coded printable maps and Insider info on where to go for the best and best-value food, shopping, activities, etc. NYC’s “best of the best” is not is spread by word of mouth.

Back to Top of NYC Printable Map Guide Book

Do I still need the NYC Insider Guide website?

Yes. The site still has a lot of information not in the NYC Printable Map Guide Book, such as online planning steps in our NYC Vacation Tips, Cool Events by Month, Broadway Ticket and Discount info, photographs and details on Sightseeing Passes. However, other than time-sensitive information, the book contains a lot of what you need to plan, and most everything you need once you’re here. The only additional thing to print might be the Monthly Events page for the time you are here.

“Very easy to read and very useful information. Easy to print out and handy to take with you. Love the way it is divided into areas with maps for reference Keep up the good work.”

  1. Hello Melissa,

    Thank you very much for putting this guide together. We are planning our first trip to NY, and you saved us lots of time. I’ll have it printed in the best possible quality at a local printing shop next week.

    Some constructive criticism is more around design and presentation than content:
    • It’d be nice to have a black-and-white version of the maps with larger prints, maybe as part of the bonus guide.
    • Some of the maps look pixelated (at least on the screen, I’m yet to see how they look once printed on paper). One example is the subway map on page 7.
    • The map’s style, size, and zoom are inconsistent. “Neighborhoods maps” courtesy of open street maps vs. “Garment District/ Fashion Center” vs. “Broadway District and Times Square” (which looks more like a Google maps screenshot), so some people might find the content difficult to see.


  2. These guides have been so helpful and made my life much easier. I️ surprised my boyfriend with a trip to NYC in March. He doesn’t know where we’re going yet so I️ am alone in planning this. Thank you so much for dedicating your time to making these!

  3. I purchased the guide 3 days ago. Overall I like the content. I like that the guide gives a brief introduction to the NYC layout at the beginning and dive into details.

  4. not user friendly in printing guides out.
    nyc bonus guide would not print out entirely.
    left out left hand side of several pages.
    i.e. limo and taxi guide and later pages that were overwide.

    • Hi Monty – it sounds like you did not have printer setting trouble with the NYC Printable Guide, but rather with the Bonus Guide. And the pages you mention come after this page, “After this page, additional bonus maps follow that are downloaded from other sites and combined into one file. The formatting may be
      off and they are very graphic intensive (will eat up your printer ink). We suggest reviewing each page to ensure it’s something you want
      to print.”

  5. Hi Melissa, Just downloaded the guide this week for our family trip this fall. I’m really loving it – the classic attractions but a few new-to-me items as well and I like that you’ve added your own commentary and opinions. Also I think it’s a good mix of family/couples/singles recommendations. Thank you for putting this together – it has helped make my trip planning so much easier!


    • Hi Melanie: The email you replied to said on the first line, “You can download file(s) for NYC Insider Guide Print Package at [link]. Please note, download link(s) will expire after 120 hours from now or after 5 attempts, whichever event happens first.”

      You can request a new link be sent, but I suggest following the initial instructions to maximize your time limit on downloading the guides.

  6. As a former New Yorker (always a New Yorker but moved), the printable guide is a really good tool. Although a New Yorker, it’s been many years since we visited New York. The first thing I looked for was some guide to give us a starting point of where things are in various locations within the city. 911 memorial location and distance to the majestic theater, distance to Harry Potter store. The printable map is awesome because it shows us the streets and will keep us on track with respect to direction. Thank you

    Be blessed……

  7. The most well organized and complete guide I have discovered during my online search for visiting New York City!

  8. These are a fantastic tool to plan a trip to NY. Ive have been a few times and can never get my head around the layout. This guide and the maps are easy to follow and give lots of tips on restaurants, attractions and shopping. It will definitely save my feet a couple of 1,000 steps!

  9. Leaving in 2 days for NYC. I love what I’ve seen so far in your maps! There are several places I’m mapping out tonight and tomorrow. – Judy

  10. WOW, We are planning my first trip to NYC, and its all so overwhelming with the number of places to see and things to do! I am a visual person and need to see it on paper!! I have been trying to create my own map… but it just wasn’t right, because, well, I have no first hand knowledge. HA!! I found your guide and I am so relieved, it is everything I wanted and more that I didn’t know I needed!! This will make planning the trip and navigating once we arrive SO.MUCH.SMOOTHER! Thank you!!!

  11. Doesn’t help me at all; total waste of $20! Doesn’t help with planning my vacay and knowing best subway routes for various places. I need to know which lines run above ground and which ones are above (i.e. from Yankee Stadium to Central Park, I know there is one line that is under ground and one where you board more like street level), and can’t tell from any of the information about Yankee Stadium. Only good information is knowing hours and costs of various places/museums (which one could look up online and NOT pay the $20). Disappointed

    • Hi Stephanie – your refund has been sent. I’m not sure why you thought there would be train info on which lines are above or below ground or why that would even matter to anyone? Most lines run both – they are ALL underground in Manhattan and many go above ground once in the boroughs. The video and screenshots are what’s in the book. Did you review them in advance of your purchase?

  12. Thank you for sharing your knowledge and experiences. I love your NYC guide. Genuinely appreciate your tips; these are the most valuable bonuses for anyone who travels.

  13. Dearest Melissa –
    The materials you provided are top quality.
    1. For restaurants it would be helpful to indicate price ranges with the traditional $ $$ $$$ $$$$ method.
    2. Hotels – it would be good to list price ranges.
    3. You might also list some other references (free and paid) that would allow your reader to further explore NYC.
    4. Listing prices for cultural activities, in addition to the free times you describe, would be great.

    You have created superb products! I can’t wait to receive the bonus NYC Travel Guide. May the good Lord protect you and keep you safe.

  14. Hi Melissa,

    I reviewed the different graphs, images. Maps and find it very informative. It’s been 13 years since I have been back to NY and hope this helps me while I am there. I am taking my kids to experience one of the best cities I have visited.

    Can you please email me the NY City Travel Guide? Can’t wait to see that.

    Thank you

  15. I thought the Insider Guide was EXCELLENT, with only 1 small disappointment. The map for Broadway/Times Square did not have enough “contrast” and was not one of the better maps. Suggestion: I would have liked a map showing all of the Broadway theaters, a section explaining what qualifies a “Broadway Theater” to be so named (also off Bway, etc) and some information on seating charts for the major show theaters. I did post a picture to my FB page and have completed this “review” but I also paid $19.99 to receive this and, although WELL WORTH the money, I would have liked the extra content without all the additional hoops to jump through. I have only glanced through the info so perhaps I missed something; if so, please forgive me!

    Wishing you all the best in your future endeavors and kudos for a job well done!

    Cathy Nail

    • Hi Cathy:

      Thanks so much for the feedback. There should be 2 maps of Times Square in the guide – the ones at the bottom of this page: (1 with stores and 1 with a theater map in pink with our restaurant recs along side it). Which map is not clear for you or didn’t print well?

      As for theaters, more than 499 seats is Broadway, 100-499 is Off Broadway and less than 100 is Off-Off Broadway.

      You are the first person to suggest including theater maps to print in over 12 years, and we will definitely consider it! We do include them on all our pages about the shows we write up on the website (including our best tips on where to sit – like when NOT to book the front few rows) and they are shown by every ticketing site when you look to buy tickets.

      Hope that clarifies things for you.

      Warmest Regards,

  16. I was very happy to come across your very informative guides of the city. I went to college in Manhattan and now 20 years later I am finally taking my husband back to NYC and I want to show him all of my favorite places and also the little things like…where I ate lunch everyday, my first apartment and my first few jobs. I love that I can refresh my memories of the streets and layouts with your maps and guides and I also love that I can see what restaurants have closed or what some of my favorites have branched out to….and thank you so much because now I am going to look like a “real New Yorker” to my husband.

  17. I am pleased with the information in this guide. I now have a visual of the area and to determine how to get where I want to go

  18. I just purchased the insiders guide. I was initially disappointed because I thought I was purchasing print material that would be mailed to me. I am unable to print myself at this time. I did look through the material and there are several pages of immense interest to me. So, now I will have to go to a service place and get these pages printed. So, I’m happy to have them, but like I said I was looking for printed information to be sent to me. I wish I could see everything on my upcoming trip and this guide provided even more than I have put on my itinerary, so repeat trips will be on my wish list. But as far as some targeted information I was looking for, I found it in the guide so thank you.

  19. Great guide – been looking for a neighborhood by neighborhood map with all streets with suggestions that go deeper than the most obvious tourist attractions. Lived in NYC for 6 years now but found a ton of new things to explore with this guide.

    Only constructive feedback would be if the road maps could just go that last 1% to go from 99% of streets captured to 100% – e.g. Gay Street, Weehawken in west village. Probably a personal thing as I’m trying to walk every street in Manhattan and using the guide maps to keep track.

    Thank you!

  20. This guide is fantastic! I love the maps, they are so helpful for figuring out our itinerary and the info is just what I was looking for. Thank you so much!

  21. Love the Print Guide. Going to NYC Dec 13-17; I’ve been there in November but that was at least 10 years ago. Thanks
    Great Guide

  22. Hi there, what a fabulous guide
    I look forward to planning my trip in December
    I think that it would be even better if i could print in colour
    Not sure what I’ve done to my printer
    So glad I found your guide looking forward to get my free extra
    many thanks julie

  23. Great way to tour New York at your own pace. This list has all the ‘Must See’ spots. I would totally recommend this to any first timer to New York

  24. Hello. I really loved the guide. It lists everything and is very handy to use. I’m looking forward to the free bonus guide!

  25. Thank you for the guide, I think it will be very helpful to us when we visit this December. I love the details of the map. We’ve never been so we’re excited to tour your city! We’re from the New Orleans area and I wish they had something like this available for the many tourists we get yearly.

    Kindest regards,

  26. Honestly this was the best book I’ve ever purchased and it was worth every single dollar I spent on it!! Thank you so so much. – Shirin

  27. Great information! My favorite is the part about discount Broadway tickets. Being from Nj I knew about discount tickets but never knew if it was legit, thanks to you I now have the correct information I needed.

  28. Many thanks! I think your guide is very good actually, am studying it now for end of May. I always buy many guides to whatever target I envisage, in order to save time (and money) for essentials when I am there, and I think you’ve done this guide very well. Best/JT

  29. Hi – Thank you for working so hard to keep these amazing resources up to date. We are planning a trip to New York, and I am loving the detail that these resources provide. Thanks again.

  30. Hello Melissa, thank you for your wonderful Insider Guides. They are very helpful for planing. There is so much more insider information than in any book you can buy. Great!

    Kindest regards,

  31. Thank you Melissa! We are taking our daughter this month for her 30th birthday! This is a first trip for us all! I have already downloaded and printed out my guide and so far it is exactly the info we need! We are going to see and experience New York! We want to eat where the locals do, and see all we can in three nights and four days! Thank you so much!

    Roger and Tammy
    Magnolia, AR

  32. The guides are exactly what we were looking for to help us navigate NYC and the highlights of each area. THANK YOU for taking the time to put this together. 🙂

  33. Hi There! Fantastic, easy to read maps – for a country bumpkin like me – so easy to understand. I look forward to reading the travel guide! Thank you.

  34. 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.

  35. 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

  36. 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

  37. 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

  38. 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 want 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.

  39. 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 🙂

  40. 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!

  41. 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.

  42. 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!

  43. 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.

  44. 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

  45. 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

  46. 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

  47. 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!!

  48. 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!

  49. 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.

  50. 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.

  51. 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!!

  52. 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.

  53. 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.

  54. 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.

  55. 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…


  57. 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!

  58. 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

  59. 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!!!

  60. 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!

  61. 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,

  62. 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.

  63. 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.

  64. 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!!!

  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. 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!

  67. 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.

  68. 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.

  69. 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

  70. 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

  71. 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

  72. 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

  73. 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

  74. 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)

  75. 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

  76. 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!

  77. 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!

  78. 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!

  79. 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!

  80. 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!

  81. 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

  82. 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.

  83. 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.

  84. 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…

  85. 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.


  86. 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!

  87. 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

  88. 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!

  89. 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!

  90. 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.

  91. 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.

  92. 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.

  93. 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

  94. 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.

  95. 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!

  96. 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.

  97. 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

  98. 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!

  99. 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!


  100. 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,

  101. 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!!!

  102. 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!


  103. 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 🙂

  104. 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!!


  105. 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!

  106. 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

  107. 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!!!

  108. 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!!!!

  109. 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.

  110. 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

  111. 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

  112. 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”!

  113. 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.

  114. 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.

  115. 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

  116. 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

  117. 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!

  118. 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.

  119. 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,

  120. 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!

  121. 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

  122. 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

  123. 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.


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

  125. 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.

  126. 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!!


  127. 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!!

  128. 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 !

  129. 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.
