Best-Selling Guide to New York City Now Available in E-Book Format

  (December 08, 2011)

(PRWEB) December 08, 2011

The essential New York City travel companion, Gerry Franks Where to Find It, Buy It, Eat It in New York, is available for the first time in e-book format. Known as the Big Apple Bible and used by the likes of Mayor Bloomberg and Donald Trump, the 17th edition of the most complete NYC guidebook is now available for Kindle, Nook and Apple iPad or iPhone products.

Since its 1980 first edition, Gerry Franks self-published guidebook phenomenon has sold over 1 million copies. Gerrys love affair with Manhattan and his commitment to publishing the most up-to-date information provides native New Yorkers and travelers alike with an exhaustive resource for navigating the tastes, sights, shopping and more in the constantly changing Manhattan landscape. In preparing the 17th edition, Gerry and his staff personally called upon virtually every listing in the book to find the latest insights into the authors adopted city.

"Still helplessly in love with New York, I remain insatiably curious about the latest worthwhile retail stores, accommodations, services, restaurants and museums, said Gerry Frank. I always experience great anticipation upon landing in New Yorks airports. Hitting the ground running in search of all these things has been my modus operandi since my soul was first stirred by New York City during childhood visits.

  •     A suggested itinerary for a week in New York
  •     Exclusive listings of thousands of taste treats and the greatest foreign, seafood, healthy fare and hotel restaurants and bars
