But then, I could get a few things like The AIA Guide to New York City and An Architectural Guidebook to Brooklyn. (One of my parents is an architect; that's the non-librarian side of the family.)
Captured: A Film & Video History of the Lower East Side
You can buy it at Bluestockings (in the LES)
For history, The Power Broker: Robert Moses and the Fall of New York is a very informing read. Waterfront by Phillip Lopate and Rats by Robert Sullivan are entertaining first-person accounts of aspects of the city with quite a bit of history mixed in.
It seems like there are millions of novels, including Breakfast at Tiffany's, The Emperor's Children, and Fury to name a few.
And as a bit of a periodical junkie, I couldn't live without my subscriptions to Time Out New York, The New York Review of Books, and the New Yorker.
The Park and the People (There are other good books on Central Park, but I think this is the place to start.)
The Other Islands of New York City (Then for a fictional tour, I Am Thinking of My Darling...)
Secret Places of Staten Island
And, of course, for book lovers, The New York Public Library
My favorite guidebook is the Not for Tourists guide which is basically a small book with lots of maps. It's definitely for locals.

Being a displaced Brooklynite myself it really touched on my love and fondness for my home sweet home.
