Some useful informationBy WandererThis book is evidently one of
a series on different cities. While the book does contain some useful information for everyone, it is geared towards 20 somethings with a lot of time on their hands. The emphasis is on getting things free rather than at a bargain. The theater section is the only one with many good ideas -- though I haven't tried any yet to see if they work. The book's usefulness in other chapters is very limited. For instance, the food section lists places with free tastes of products being promoted. I suppose if you have the time, energy and inclination to go for a bite of cheese here, and bit of bread there... until you are full, you might stop hunger pangs that way. It would be much more useful to know where, to get deals on food. (He does mention a fruit stand.) I have nothing against picking up furniture and other items being thrown out on the street. Reuse is even better than recycling (though with the bed bug problem in NY, gathering upholstered furniture doesn't seem like a great idea), but it would be nice to know where they are selling it at good prices -- or getting rid of seconds. Still, if the suggestions work, the theater section alone might be worth the price of the book. The strength of the book is the provision of specific names and addresses rather than strategies.0 of 0 people found the following review helpful. fun and usefulBy Dolores Riordanfor my granddaughter starting Fordham unit in the fall. fun and useful info0 of 0 people found the following review helpful.
