The Not For Tourists Guide to Chicago divides Chi-town into sixty mapped neighborhoods. Every map is dotted with user-friendly NFT icons that plot the nearest essential services and entertainment locations, while providing important information on things like kid-friendly activities, public transportation, restaurants, bars, and Chicago’s art scene. The book includes a foldout highway map, and covers the North Side, Near North Side, Near West Side, the Greater Loop, the South Side, and Greater Chicago. It’s the only key to the Windy City that Daley can’t give you.
Not For Tourists (NFT) released their first book, a guide to Manhattan, in May of 2000. Today, NFT is an urban lifestyle brand that works closely with city and neighborhood editors in Boston, Chicago, London, Los Angeles, and New York. Their offices are in New York City.
