It's difficult to find businesses you trust and when I moved to Sydney, Australia, I enlisted the help of a group of friends with great taste and style to help me build my own little black book - Sydney's Best Kept Secrets. The site is divided into categories (e.g. hair stylists, doctors, dentists, house cleaners, etc) with recommendations for each, and comments from the general public.
I also have a number of simple location guides on Squidoo including Noho, New York City, Bernal Heights, San Francisco, California, Noe Valley, San Francisco, California, and Sydney, Australia.
