Manhattan Bus MapSome people think Manhattan and New York City are synonymous, but technically they are not. Manhattan is one of the five boroughs that make up New York City. The others are Brooklyn, The Bronx, Queens, and Staten Island. It?s a persnickety detail, but detail is what STREETWISE® is about. For example, the architectural details drawn on the Manhattan New York map are in outline form. A solid drawing would obscure the streets surrounding the location, and therefore hamper the usability of the map. Only in unobstructed locations will you find a solid drawing.You may not notice this or any of the many other details that combine to make a NY city map that has been called the best selling map on earth*. The STREETWISE® Manhattan Map is detailed from lower tip to upper tip. It is layered with information about sites and mass transit routes. The New York City Subway system is one of the most important and vital rail networks in the world. It is also the fastest and cheapest way to travel north-south in New York. Our Manhattan street map has the best designed diagram of the Subway system ever produced on a street map. An inset of Manhattan bus routes complements the Subway system. You are now prepared to travel the length and breadth of Manhattan. From shopping in SOHO, dining in the Village, working in Midtown, visiting the Met on the Upper East Side or strolling thru Central Park, you?re covered with the STREETWISE® Manhattan Map of NYC. From the Staten Island Ferry up to the rediscovered realm of Harlem, you can navigate like a native New Yorker with this pocket size Manhattan Map.Good city maps, like the STREETWISE® map of Manhattan, will guide you in the right direction and directly impact your experience of New York.

You won?t have to search dozens of websites, and you will have the information you need to keep your travel costs in check.


Keep your money with this book! It will help you spend nothing but time enjoying one of the greatest cities in the world.

Enjoy New York without the sucking sound in your wallet. This book could save you hundreds!!


When I moved to The City in 1998, I was so broke I couldn?t pay attention. I had no choice but to seek out all that?s great and free. Now, as a travel writer I'm still broke, and I?m also the father of 3 kids. I have no choice but to get creative to stretch my travel dollars. I believe that the less you spend on travel, the more you experience. Even in New York, you can have a great cultural experience without paying through the nose.
