Didn't flow well

Many of the tracks were cut incorrectly, so you had to go to the end of the prior track to know what landmark was being discussed. The file also jumped around, so even though the accomanying guide was numbered, it didn't track well with the audio files.

If the author wants to use this format, would prefer starting with a general introduction up front of all of the key highlights to see in NYC, then tell us what track # the specifics are at (and title the tracks accordingly), then step through as an actual audio tour. This was more of a history lesson (with good information, which is why I gave 2 stars - although I had the information already in my guidebook). We ended up not using this audio file at all on our trip, so this was a waste of my $.
