Pauline Frommer's highly-personal guide to her own home city has, in previous editions, won prestigious awards as "Best Guidebook of the Year". Though she deals with luxury choices as well as bargains, she makes a special effort to overcome New York's reputation for stratospheric prices, ferreting out scores of moderately-priced options in lodgings, meals, attractions, entertainment and more. Like all Easy Guides, this annually-researched and popular best-seller is "Quick to Read, Light to Carry"--and colorfully written. -Handy pull-out map -Self-guided walking tours -Exact prices and subway directions for every listing in the book
Pauline Frommer started traveling with her guidebook-writing parents at the age of four months and hasn't stopped since. Her first job in travel was on the website Frommers.com, and eventually she worked her way up to Editor in Chief. Pauline also served as Travel Editor for MSNBC.com for several years, before working with John Wiley and Sons to create the award-winning Pauline Frommer Guidebooks, a 14-book series that won the coveted "Best Guidebook of the Year" title three years in a row from the North American Travel Journalists Association and once from the Society of American Travel Writers. For four years, Pauline created weekly travel segments for CNN's Headline News and CNN's Pipeline. You may also have seen her talking travel on The Today Show, Live with Regis and Kelly, The O'Reilly Factor, NBC Nightly News and ABC World News, Good Morning America, FOX News and every local news station you can name. On weekends, she hosts a nationally syndicated radio show on travel. Her writings have been widely published in everything from Budget Travel Magazine to the Newsweek to Nick, Jr. magazine; she also pens an internationally syndicated newspaper column for King Features. Frommer resides in New York City with her husband and two daughters.
