Zagat for NYC Ants
This is a must-read for anyone living in or visiting New York, I wouldn't want to be caught there without it!
The super-macro photos, detailed maps, and useful captions make this an excellent little field guide, to take with you on a sidewalk exploration or to keep on your bedside table.
The well-written text is accessible to inquisitive young students and fascinating reading for grown-up adults too.
