If you are here means you like design and style, and me too, and this Manhattan and Brooklyn [downtown] has the informations that a upscale but gritty person is interested, how to go famous and not famous places, major landmarks, fancy restaurants and bars or the speakeasy for singles.
Perfect to families and groups, it helps avoid the touristici streets for a more intimate and quieter discovery of the city that never sleep. But you can find music gigs, concert halls [blue •], plus the relaxing areas like parks [green] and sports areas.
The paper is LAMINATED with UV so it gives it strength and some kind of water protection, not 100% because the sandwich of film and paper has the side open, so when water infiltrates between it will bulge and damage; just dry though and the map will be still usable.
The folding is ergonomically thought for the map to be read horizontal with a slight angle that reflects the real NYC orientation, with left hand at the TOP left and right hand up in BOTTOM right, \ like that.
The subways lines are [embedded] in the streets design so to give easy directions to where to go, there is a complete 5 boros [boroughs] map with Queens, The Bronx, Brooklyn and Staten Island in case you get lost or like to get lost in East New York or Morrisania.

Many good feedback because of paper that last longer, dont worry easy to read and fast
Benefits of these maps/guide are evident; the size 24 x 9 makes them easy to read on the big text of places easy to find, compare that to the screen of any phone and you will found yourself in the middle of the street wondering where to go. I guess if you are in the middle of the streets unaware of yourself, a angry taxi will honk to you to stop the traffic, like a deer in the night.
Amazon Review ★★★★★ 5.0 out of 5 starsVery handy and easy to pack This map had enough detail to be useful. It packs well and doesn't shred. It will last for a long time and has landmarks on it, as well.
