In prior to going to New York on a business trip in November 2007, I
had first thought that this would be a good opportunity to try the
Moleskine City Notebook series.
When I checked a sample of the New York notebook at a stationery shop,
however, there was a section or two in it that I had trouble figuring
out how to use efficiently.
I contacted a well-traveled internet friend of mine whom I consider as
a reliable source of stationery items and asked that person’s opinion
on the New York City Notebook; an email from that person confirmed my
doubts on the notebook.
Consequently, I bought a pocket Moleskine with squared pages – my
favorite type – and converted it into a guidebook as I did for my trip
to Paris in 2005, pasting trimmed printouts from several webpages
(including local maps) and writing down information on NYC that I found
indispensable. I also used it as a travel journal for the trip.
For me, the custom-made notebook worked well throughout my stay in NYC.
