What did you like about the book?  This is a fun travel guide that is geared toward families with children.  The book breaks the city into 6 color coded neighborhoods, Downtown, Midtown, Uptown, Brooklyn, Bronx and Queens, Sandy Hook and Staten Island.  Maps of each neighborhood are on the first page of each section. Each of the 80 destinations is given a double page spread and includes a color photograph, most featuring children, website, and subway directions.  The pages include insider tips for the sites and kid-friendly activities.  The book also includes One Day and Three Day Itineraries and an index.
