Opinionated advice on what to see and what to skip



Insightful discussions of New York’s history and culture

16-page photo guide with vibrant photographs

Product Description:

New York Times Bestseller

Living in New York City for five years as a transplant from Ohio, illustrator and T-shirt designer Nathan Pyle was fascinated by the unique habits and unspoken customs New Yorkers follow to make life bearable in a city with 8 million people (and seemingly twice the number of tourists). In NYC Basic Tips and Etiquette, Pyle reveals the secrets and unwritten rules for living in and visiting New York including the answers to such burning questions as, how do I hail a cab? What is a bodega? Which way is Uptown? Why are there so many doors in the sidewalk? How do I walk on an escalator? Do we need be touching right now? Where should I inhale or exhale while passing sidewalk garbage? How long should I honk my horn? If New York were a game show, how would I win? What happens when I stand in the bike lane? Who should get the empty subway seats?  How do I stay safe during a trash tornado? Each tip is a little story illustrated in simple black and white drawings.

Product Description:
VanDam's newly revised 2018 STREETSMART® NYC Midtown Edition maps all top attractions including museums, major architecture, hotels, theaters, shopping destinations, and the subway system for all of Manhattan at an immensely legible super-scale of 1:32,000 complete with 3-D building illustrations. Clear information design allows users to read the map from three feet away and has earned VanDam maps a place in the MoMA Collection. The map is film-laminated, accordion folded and pocket size.

Coverage:

Manhattan Street Map 1: 32,000 Midtown Detail Map: 1:17,000 Manhattan Subway Map Upper Manhattan Map 1: 33,000
Dimensions: 4 x 9 folded, 9 x 24 unfolded, fits into shirt pocket or purse.

STREETSMART® NYC is so legible you will instantly understand how The City connects to all its parts. From God's perspective to the most minute details. For example: you are looking to get from the NoMAD hotel to Jazz at Lincoln Center, searching for exits with elevators on the HighLine, meeting friends at the Hudson theater in Times Square, maneuvering the shifting grid of the West Village, shopping the Meat Market, hiking across Central Park to the MET, trekking to Hamilton Terrace in Harlem, looking for an uptown exit from the FDR Drive or just wanting to understand how the subway connects with ferries along the East River. This map makes it easy and you an instant New Yorker. Stephan Van Dam, the map's designer and publisher has been Manhattan-based for 40 years and knows NYC inside out.

STREETSMART® NYC includes the entire island with a stunning dimensional detail of Midtown Manhattan from Chelsea to the Upper East and West Sides with Times Square and the Theater District at its center. The map's 1:17,000 scale makes you feel you are there with 3D buildings illustrations as your compass. All subway stops are marked by their respective stops right on the main map and on a separate subway overview so you know both the local details and understand the larger system. There is a Manhattan address finder to find any address in New York City. Locals refer to Manhattan, the most densely populated of the five boroughs, as New York City or just The City. The other four boroughs the Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens and Staten Island are collectively known as The City of New York and are available as separate STREETSMART® Maps.

STREETSMART® NYC maps are updated three to four times a year and more current than any other map available. Its film lamination is extra durable and will last you for your next trip. A customer recently suggested our maps are too good but we like quality that lasts. Simplicity reigns supreme to make complex cities clear and understandable. Our typography creates character and reveals the true bones of the vertical city. VanDam uses a letter grid to identify locations on maps - no confusing and cluttering K-28 or V-34s - its just the city from A-Z. Our covers map the icons of each city and turn them into collectible graphic art. Each sleek and laminated city map package opens to 24" x 9" and then easily folds down to 4" x 9" to snuggly fit into a shirt pocket or purse. Gain instant NYC STREETSMARTS and a sexy souvenir to boot!
