From Harlem to the East Village to the Bronx's City Island, this guide covers each major neighborhood and borough. In this new second edition, veteran travel writer Paul Karr updates the latest goings-on in the Big Apple, including: the skinny on the newly reopened Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), back in its Midtown home after a hiatus in Queens; the latest on the exciting new Time-Warner Center, which brings together a world-class hotel, an unparalleled collection of renowned chefs, live jazz, and first-class shopping beneath one colossal roof--actually, two; the opening of a new observation deck at Rockefeller Center, offering an alternative to the Empire State Building, the hottest new boutique hotels, restaurants, and nightlife; updated subway maps reflecting the latest changes in New York City mass transit, as the city continues to rebuild after 9/11; and more.
