With more than 500, 000 copies sold to date--including the classic best-seller New York (150K)--the time is right to roll out a revamped & revised new edition of this popular guide to one of the United States` most visited city. -New York City gets over 47 million international & domestic visitors every year (numbers as of 2008)--37 million of those are from the United States. -New York`s tourism is booming year round, with slight peaks around the holidays but otherwise consistent throughout the year. -Burroughs outside of Manhatten draw hourdes of tourists on their own, specifically the hip, crafty, foodie-beloved neighborhoods of Brooklyn. ( Our new deck features several new walks in Brooklyn, as well as additional walks in Harlem, the Bronx, Queens, & more. QUANTIFY VALUE: Every one of the 50 walks is either completely new or completely re-written to reflect unique, exciting locations, different neighborhoods, & loads of shops, restaurants, parks, & other destinations.NOTABLE AUTHORS: Christina Henry de Tessan has a tried-&-true writing voice where these decks are concerned: she is the editor-at-large of the series as a whole & the author of several decks herself. RELEVEANT SALES COMPARISONS OR INFO: We`ve had good feedback on the deck in general, but customers bemoan how out-of-date they are--there are several spots on the walks that are no longer in business, neighborhoods where the center of activity has shifted somewhat, etc. This new deck brings everything up to date.
