Not for Tourists - Guide to Queens Summary

Not for Tourists - Guide to Queens: 2009 by Jane Pirone

While Manhattan morphs into a giant shopping mall and Brooklyn goes haute-bourgeois, Queens still offers the average Metrocard-carrying New Yorker the opportunity to live cheap, eat well, and explore immigrant enclaves and world-class museums in the same afternoon. With this Not for Tourists guide to Queens, you'll be able to seek out tasty dim sum, cutting-edge art, friendly pubs, surfing beaches, affordable co-ops, foreign film premieres, 24-hour bowling alleys, and much more. Written by expert local writers, Not for Tourists guidebooks are map-based, neighbourhood by neighbourhood guides designed to lighten the load of already street-savvy residents, commuters, business travellers, and yes, tourists too. In this book, you'll find four detailed maps for every neighbourhood covered, from Astoria to Jamaica to Bayside, all fully detailed with an updated catalogue of local restaurants, bars, shops, and landmarks. You'll enjoy fresh coverage of parks, beaches, sports arenas, museums, theatres, and all the rest. Each map is marked with user-friendly icons identifying the services and entertainment centres that you look for as you make your way through town: everything from post offices, car parks, restaurants, bars, DIY stores and gyms to information on hotels, airports, public transport and parks. Complete with a highly detailed fold-out street map, which incorporates bus and subway routes, this book will tell you where to go and how to get there. Whether you're a seasoned resident, a returning visitor, relocating, or someone who is completely new in town, Not for Tourists guidebooks help you make the most of your time in the city, while you're in it.
