This deceptively compact map of Manhattan puts most guidebooks to shame. Pocket Pilots city map/guides are easy-to-fold, easy to read, laminated, and small enough to stash in a jacket pocket. The cartographers have cleverly designed each title so that tons of useful information is available at a glance, including how to use/navigate the public transit system, a brief and pithy guide to the city's most popular points of interest, a neighborhood-by-neighborhood description of the city, listings of parks, cultural events, and hot spots, notes on local cuisine, commonly used local phrases - and, above all, a street map featuring magnifications of prime areas.
If you are familiar with the first generation Pocket-Pilot guide, then you will recognize the product's design and structure. Despite the obvious increase in size (580 x 980mm) it still folds down to a pocket size (98 x 198mm).
Major improvements are:
larger font size
full street index
more Top Sights and Day Trips with more descriptive texts
a more detailed Quarters section with photos and text
even more detailed Public Transport descriptions and a bigger map for ease of navigation
a new section called Distractions covers topics like shopping, eating, drinking and dancing
a clear design with an almost wall-map-like appearance.
