Proclaimed by many (mainly New Yorkers) to be the greatest city ever to stand on the face of the Earth, New York City is just like you see it on the movies: Skyscrapers, yellow cabs, outdated looking subway system and frantically busy people running around, all trapped into this strangely alluring metropolis which cultural vibe is always (really, always) changing, and doing it faster than a model’s clothes at Fashion Week.
To keep up with what means traveling this city that appears to have a life of its own, here are the best travel books about New York City.
