Product Description:

Pauline Frommer's highly-personal guide to her own home city has, in previous editions, twice been named "Best Guidebook of the Year" by the North American Travel Journalists Association. It has been the best-selling guide to the city for the last four years. Though she deals with luxury choices as well as bargains, she makes a special effort to overcome New York's reputation for stratospheric prices, ferreting out scores of moderately-priced options in lodgings, meals, attractions, entertainment and more.



Like all Easy Guides, this annually-researched and popular best-seller is "Quick to Read, Light to Carry"―and colorfully written.



Fully updated yearly, and printed in large, easy-to-read type, the book contains:



Handy pull-out map and bulleted maps throughout



Self-guided walking tours



Exact prices and subway directions for every listing in the book



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



About Frommer’s: There’s a reason that Frommer’s has been the most trusted name in travel for more than sixty years. Arthur Frommer created the best-selling guide series in 1957 to help American servicemen fulfill their dreams of travel in Europe, and since then, we have published thousands of titles became a household name helping millions upon millions of people realize their own dreams of seeing our planet. Travel is easy with Frommer’s.

  • New York City street map with attractions and subways
Product Description:
VanDam's newly revised 2018 STREETSMART® NYC 9/11Edition maps all top attractions including museums, major architecture, hotels, shopping destinations, the Memorial Museum grounds 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 you 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 Lower Manhattan Detail Map: 1:8,000 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 9/11 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 hike from the Conrad Hotel to Castle Clinton, searching for elevator access on the High Line, meeting friends at the Hudson theater in Times Square, maneuvering the shifting grid of the West Village, shopping the Meat Market, trekking to Hamilton Terrace in Harlem, looking for the uptown exit from the FDR Drive onto the Brooklyn Bridge 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 9/11 includes the entire island plus a stunning dimensional detail of Lower Manhattan with historic walks around the 9/11 Memorial grounds and through the maze of the Financial District clearly marked. The map scale of 1:8,000 makes you feel you are there with 3D buildings illustrations as your compass. All subway stops are marked by their respective line in context 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!
