KIRKUS REVIEW

If you're one of those who only find it a great place to visit, you'll still want Kate Simon's New York': Places & Pleasures (1964) but this book is designed for the native, particularly the newcomer. It's an arsenal of information, listings, addresses, phone numbers, and facts to assist you from the first time you look for an apartment or a house (where- how- how much- landlord or tenant rights and responsibilities) etc.; then there are large sections on education, employment, transportation, health, government agencies and religious institutions, sights, trips, playground and recreation facilities; etc. Exhaustive and functional.
