Not For Tourists (NFT) released their first book, a guide to Manhattan, in May of 2000. Today, NFT produces eleven books each year, working closely with city and neighborhood editors in Atlanta, Boston, Brooklyn, Chicago, London, Los Angeles, New York, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Seattle, and Washington DC. Their offices are in New York City.
"For people who don't want to be seen carrying a guidebook." --The New York Times "Take an A to Z, mix it with a Lonely Planet and throw in all the things a guidebook should never say, and voila." --The Observer "A series of guides designed to make you feel like a local." --CNN "Quality guides written by travel experts" --Travel Channel "Survival handbooks for natives--but they can be lifesavers for visitors as well." --The Boston Globe "It's not quite Lonely Planet, and it's not quite the Yellow Pages, but NFT may be their bastard child." --Toronto Star "This is one guidebook you won't find in the fanny pack next to the wet wipes." --Entertainment "At NFT's core is that most important of things...good taste." --The Guardian
