As someone who walks 50 miles a week or so in New York City, I've collected a number of guide books over the years.

I am hoping to be a big apple greeter in the City , and as part of the training, plan to take the official guide test given by the city, a 175 questionnaire.

The city strongly recommends the use of this guide book for study purposes. I've been studying it intently and recommend it highly.

writing this in haste....

I could not find this book in the Manhattan public library nor the queen's library nor could I find it at Strand.. its either sold out or there is a copy on hold

this is the go to book if you want to become a tour guide, I've read other books on new york city but this is the most comprehensive and will prepare you to give walking tours and bus tours

This book is nice and the paper quality is nice and it is very detailed and covers all of NYC in depth and gives an in-depth historical account of New York, it also focuses on architecture in New York city

The Blue Guide New York has a ton of information and is very useful to study for the licensing exam. Manhattan is covered extensively from north to south, east to west - and that's great!

However, I am extremely disappointed to find that out of 600+ pages, this book only devotes 9 pages to the Bronx. Why do we get no love?? The sections mentioned for the Bronx, is nothing more than a fleeting acknowledgement that my borough exists somewhere north of Manhattan. The author misses the mark on so many levels. For example:

The Bronx Zoo: There are only two paragraphs, none of which talks about the history of this amazing zoological park, which happens to be the largest metropolitan zoo in the US. The information provided in the book could have been found on the zoo's website - meh!

The Botanical Garden: Again, the author dropped the ball. What about the background of the land, who owned the land before it became parkland? Oh and what about the old forest?? What about the mill??

Pelham Bay Park: While the author made an effort by talking at length about Bartow Pell Mansion, she failed to detail the history of this area, especially during the Revolutionary War. There was an important battle here.

By the way, Arthur Avenue is not "sometimes" called The Real Little Italy of New York. It is ALWAYS called the Real Italy of New York.

To the author: In the next edition, please add more for the Bronx. Come for a visit - perhaps hang out with Mr. Lloyd Ultan. The Bronx deserves more than the pittance you throw at us on these 9 pages. I know you can do better.

The ultimate guide to Mew York. It was my biggest aspect for successfully passing my exam for sightseeing guide here in the Big Apple.
Lots of info, well,structured, complete. For those in need of a real guide. Less pictures, more content. I would recommend it every single day.

For anyone planning a visit to the five boroughs, this is a must have. Forget other guides, they only skim the surface. If you are serious but getting to see and understand New York City, how it grew and developed, why neighborhoods look the way they do and how this fantastic city emerged from a sleepy Dutch trading post, then this is the book to have.
