New York City (Visual Explorer Guide series)

59611376. sx318

New York City is a volume in the Visual Explorer Guide series, this volume curated and written by Peter Mavrikis. Due out 14th June 2022 from Amber Books, it's 224 pages and will be available in flexibound format. 

This is a really attractive guidebook to travel destination: New York City. The entries are arranged thematically: city parks, landmarks, eating & drinking, shopping (*swoon*), entertainment (also *swoon*worthy),  and transport. Each chapter is further divided into specific destinations. Each of the entries contains location info with a short bio of the attraction. Additional information such as webURLs, maps, times to visit, etc, are not included, but the info will be easy to locate with an internet search.

The photography is abundant and clear. The photos are nearly all stock photos; all photo credits are included in the back of the book.

Four stars. It's a competently curated look at one of the planet's mega-cities and it's full of really well presented photos of iconic locations and destinations. It would make a good choice for public or school library acquisition as well as for home use in the early planning stages for a holiday. It's not really a guidebook, per se.

Disclosure: I received an ARC at no cost from the author/publisher for review purposes.
