Product Details


These are two of eight titles in the launch of a new "Encounter" series of pocket city guides created specifically for the visitor planning a two- to five-day trip to a city. Each volume is researched and written by a local author and focuses on what the city's residents themselves-both notable figures such as Craig Newmark of Craigslist in San Francisco and "average Joes" such as a Brooklyn bodega owner-feel are the best itineraries, neighborhoods, sights, shopping, and dining experiences in their hometown. This of course makes for fairly subjective lists. The target audience for the series seems to be younger, hipper travelers who will no doubt be pleased with the recommendations for clubs, bars, and hot new restaurants, but there are plenty of suggestions for mainstream tourist attractions and eateries as well. All weekend and short-term visitors will appreciate the color photos, compact format, and insider tips. Recommended for public libraries, especially those with larger travel collections.-Rita Simmons, Sterling Heights P.L., MI Copyright 2007 Reed Business Information.
