My Urban Sherpa is an Internet resource for travelers and residents alike, whose plethora of interests and dearth of free time demand reliable information of the well-heeled and well-traveled. My Urban Sherpa recommends restaurants, shops, exercise facilities and cultural events that cover well-known destinations and hidden neighborhood gems. Easy to navigate, time efficient, and up-to-date, the site winnows an overwhelming number of choices into a manageable and reliable selection.
Visitors can search for information by category and neighborhood. Listings include the street address, phone number, map, Web link, pithy description and occasionally a logo or photo.
Recommendations on where to dine, how to spend Saturday, and where to go for culinary inspiration appear in short editorials from iconic New Yorkers. Reviews may be added by registered members. My Urban Sherpa is free to the user, whom we hope includes you.

If you have a laptop with wi-fi, you rarely need to be without My Urban Sherpa. More and more of the city's private and public spaces have free wireless access. Bryant Park has long been a laptop scene, more recently joined by Union Square Park, Dag Hammerskjold Park, eight locations in Central Park, and a variety of other spots will in town. A Starbucks often has a private wireless connection floating by, and some residents have been known to sidle up to big co-op buildings and play the odds: odds are, someone has a connection you can hitch-hike on.
