3. For The Person Who Wants to Know EVERYTHING About New York
True New York City lovers will appreciate having "The Encyclopedia of New York City"

put out by the New York City Landmarks and Preservation Commission is a great choice with lots of information about New York City's landmarks and historical neighborhoods.
