5.0 out of 5 stars Guided me through NYC Nov. 29 2011
By ashmac
This map was a handy tool on our recent visit to New York City. Laminated for protection and convenient in size, this map is an excellent investment if you're planning a trip to The Big Apple. We never got lost thanks to this map! I'm glad I purchased it for our trip.

5.0 out of 5 stars The nonpareil of portable Manhattan maps Feb. 5 2006
By BrooksNYC - Published on Amazon.com
To the user whose StreetWise map didn't show the Chrysler Building: You'll be pleased to know that the Chrysler has been added to the latest addition!

I've been using this map since it first came out, and have given away more copies than I can count. I keep a map in each of two briefcases and one in my backpack. I use it several times a month to plot subway routes or to get my bearings in an unfamiliar neighborhood.

I've lived in NYC for thirty-six years, and this is the map I couldn't do without. Great product.

4.0 out of 5 stars Incredibly useful Sept. 29 2005
By ceprice - Published on Amazon.com

This map has been a godsend to me. Not only does it list popular sites, but it manages to fit the entire island of Manhattan on it. It's great for me, since I go all over the city and definitely need the uptown bits that generally get cut off. Also, having a bus map has turned out to be indispensable more than once. The only thing I could do with is a full subway map. While it does list the stops, it's very hard to see how they all connect and thus plan a trip via subway. But overall, this has been the best pocket map I've found of Manhattan.

5.0 out of 5 stars WOW! Don't go to NYC without this! Sept. 28 2006
By Txnative - Published on Amazon.com
I picked this map up on my second day in NYC because it is small (essentially a piece of paper folded in half), lamenated, and had the subway stops/connections along with the streets. Wow, was it worth the money! I walked/took the subway over 4 days and hit every neighborhood all because of the ease of this map. "Study" it while on the train so you are prepared at your next stop. This map along with a multiday subway pass is all you need to have freedom to explore NYC with confidence and speed!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Quality -- Mine Lasted Over 24 Years Jan. 6 2012
By mk - Published on Amazon.com
You might not believe it but I bought one of these in 1987 and I'm still using it! (and a DC one the following year, still have that). I keep it in my car and have GPS in-car plus iphone now, but I used it a lot before GPS was invented and still pull it out once in a while to see what bridge is nearer if I'm in Brooklyn as I do not have a good sense of direction and my GPS always wants to send me via the midtown tunnel or the battery tunnel and make me pay a toll. NYC has changed, obviously, but the point is, this really lasts well if you treat it nicely and has everything you need for Manhattan at a glance. I would note that the new ones I've seen in stores look like they are made with the same great quality material. Other maps I've had from other companies that are more expensive are literally falling apart with less use after a year. It's not quite as convenient as those origami maps that fold up business card size, but it's much more durable as those wear out after a few months. Streetwise rocks!

5.0 out of 5 stars NYPD Issued May 24 2010
By Saint Jay - Published on Amazon.com
I just purchased this map for friends who are visiting from Canada. I first found out about Streetwise Manhattan when I was an NYPD Field Training Officer back in the the 1980's. The Association for a Better New York, then under the direction of former NYC Mayor John Lindsey, gave us cases of maps to issue to new police officers assigned NSU-3 in Mid-town Manhattan. With Streetwise Maps our Officers were able to give specific directions to visitors and residents on where a place was and how to get there. It does not give a description of a place just the location and how to get there in an easy to read format. The map was folded and ringed to exactly fit in the NYPD issued memo book holders. The NYPD copies did include some specific information not listed on the regular copies back then. I myself used the map to give countless directions to people and other Officers when I was assigned to the area around the United Nations. I also frequently gave away my copies to visitors when they asked me. When my son and sister were appointed to the NYPD and assigned to Manhattan I gave them copies. My father use to give copies to co-workers visiting his New York office, so they could explore on their own. One of his business associates was staying at a hotel on Central Park South at 5th Ave. and looking for Central Park and FAO Schwartz on the corner of E59th St and 5th Ave. The map let him know that he was there. Central Park South is also called W 59th St. Avenue of the America's is also called 6th Ave and Lexington Ave 4th Ave by locals. I do find it odd that with all the copies I gave away I now have to purchase a copy. If your coming to experience New York, and everyone needs to visit and enjoy the energy, arts, shopping, museums, and everything else that is New York at least once, you need a copy of this map and an MTA card for the buses and subways to get around. And yes the subways in Manhattan are safe, fairly clean, and the best way to get around.
