Summary

New York, New York – a crazy quilt of evolving neighborhoods, trends, and tastes, and home to natives and newcomers of every nationality, ethnicity, and outlook. New York City's history and grand ambitions live in every street, park, and hidden alleyway. This unusual guidebook invites the adventurous and curious to explore a wildly diverse selection of little-known places, including: a trapeze school, a giant Buddha in a former porno theater, a Coney Island sideshow, Louis Armstrong's home, a Central Park croquet court, a Gatsby-era speakeasy, and a secret balcony where slaves worshipped 200 years ago. Play chess with the masters on a Midtown office-tower wall; have a pint at a legendary prizefighter's hangout in Soho; whisper messages across a crowded train station. Unexpected and quirky, most of these destinations are so under-the-radar they'll astound even longtime New Yorkers who thought they knew it all!New York, New York … Die Stadt, die niemals schläft, ist nicht nur eine Welt für sich, sondern die ganze Welt in sich - ein Mix aus sich ständig wandelnden Vierteln und Heimat Alteingesessener wie Newcomern jeglicher Nationalität und Mentalität. Dieses Buch lädt Neugierige ein, unbekannte Orte zu erkunden, so etwa einen gigantischen Buddha in einem Sexkino, Spelunken der Gatsby-Ära, das Haus von Louis Armstrong, chinesische Vögel im Freien, Geheimtipps hungriger Hipster, den unwahrscheinlichsten Ort für Flüsterbotschaften oder einen Balkon, auf dem vor 200 Jahren Sklaven beteten. Dermaßen überraschend und schräg sind die Ziele unserer Reise durch die Stadt, dass selbst New Yorker staunen, die dachten, sie kennen hier alles!

    Everything you need for a successful and easy Australian vacation—in one concise and intelligent guide. The Australian dollar has recently plunged in value against the U.S. dollar making Australia far more accessible than it has been in years. To keep up with the changes the new currency situation has brought about, we’ve turned once again to Lee Mylne. Based in Brisbane (the third most populous city in Australia), Mylne has been an Australian travel journalist for nearly all her working life. She has crisscrossed every state and territory of Australia by every means of transport, and she is a life member and past president of the Australian Society of Travel Writers.  This guide is updated each year, concisely written (so it’s easy to carry) and printed in large, easy-to-read type  
    16 pages of vibrant photographs, plus dozens of photographs throughout the book  
    Opinionated reviews of Australia’s best attractions, hotels, restaurants, nightlife venues and shops—everything you need to know, nothing you don’t  
    Detailed local maps marked with hotels, restaurants, and attractions, plus a map of Sydney’s ferry system  
    Expert tips and recommendations for Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Cairns and the Great Barrier Reef, Tasmania, and the Red Centre including Uluru  
    Reviews with exact pricing, so there’s never any guessing, using the Frommer’s star rating system  
    Suggested itineraries, including for families and for one-week visits  
    Smart advice on how to scuba dive, avoiding dangerous animals, dodging crowds, renting a car, money-saving packages, and more  
    A rich section on the history of Australia, including detailed context on Aboriginal issues and tips on cultural sensitivity  
    A handy pull-out, indexed map of Australia ideal for in-depth trip planning  
    There’s a reason that Frommer’s has been the most trusted name in travel for more than sixty years. Arthur Frommer created the best-selling guide series in 1957 to help American servicemen fulfill their dreams of travel in Europe, and since then, we have published thousands of titles became a household name helping millions upon millions of people realize their own dreams of seeing our planet. Travel is easy with Frommer’s.
