Editorial ReviewExcerpt from New York Times 10/12/08You may think of Fodors as dependably bland, but its New York City 2009 (Fodors Travel, 552 pages, $18.95) is the cant-go-wrong choice for just about any first-timer to the Big Apple. First, its beautiful great layout, nice maps, easy-to-read font on thick paper. And design matters with guidebooks: they have to be legible in low light, on crowded buses and in airports when youre jetlagged and your contacts are killing you. The best way to break up this mammoth city is by neighborhood, and Fodors devotes about 200 pages to that task. The neighborhood guides pack information into breezy prose, and have sections like Where can I find ...? which gives you two choices each for a coffee stop, a quick bite or cocktails in each neighborhood, eliminating possible excuses for entering a Starbucks or McDonalds. If youre browsing in the bookstore and you want a quick sense of why Fodors stands out, look at their seven-page section on ground zero that starts on page 48 and somehow manages to explain the site and the history in depth while also hitting the right notes about the tragedy.To view full article go to http://travel.nytimes.com/2008/10/12/travel/12weekend.htmlProduct DescriptionFodors.
