GIVEAWAY: Not For Tourist Guides To 11 Top Cities

When I moved to New York City years ago, a little black book became my indispensable guide. With detailed maps of every section of Manhattan and icons indicating where the best restaurants, shops, bars and attractions are, my Not For Tourists Guide (NFT) never left my bag. I found it especially useful for finding things like public transportation, ATMs, service-specific shops and other essential services in such a big city. They'll be just as handy to visitors as to established residents looking to discover more gems in their home cities.
