300 reasons to love New York 

Part coffee-table book and part tourist guide, 300 Reasons to Love New York sets out the hundreds of reasons why I moved to New York in 2009 and how I developed such a crush on the Big Apple. Written both for people familiar with New York City and for travelers planning their first trip, this book illustrates a unique and diverse city that breathes in rhythm with its many neighbourhoods and the treasures hidden in each one.

Where can you go to eat a snack on the run or sip a Manhattan? How can you find a reasonably priced hotel room? Where can you admire a sunset or take a fool-proof photo of the famous Brooklyn Bridge? What are the best restaurants? Where can you find the latest fashions or a spot for a picnic? Where are those unusual places that exist nowhere else? And most important of all: where, far from the hordes of tourists, can you mingle with real New Yorkers?

The book is brimming with real-life photos and is divided into 12 geographical chapters, spanning every single neighbourhood in the city. (Pour la version française, cliquez ici, e per la versione italiana del libro clicca qui.)
