Ultimate New York City Map Guide

In this newly published New York City guidebook, the author’s intimate knowledge of Manhattan is apparent as soon as you look at the beautifully rendered maps. At a glance the maps provide a snapshot of where the action is. Streets where dining and nightlife can be found are colorfully highlighted in yellow; shopping districts highlighted in purple; and, streets worth exploring are outlined with heavy black lines.

“Restaurants in New York come and go, but where they are located tends to stay the same for decades,” remarks author/cartographer Jim Schmitt. “I believe the key to exploring with confidence and enjoying yourself in new places is simply knowing where you’re going.  With this book I hope to inspire people to experience all that the Big Apple has to offer.”

Indeed, this New York City map guide makes it easy to plan either a shopping or dining excursion in whichever part of the city you’re exploring. Neighborhood attractions, points of interest, parking, and mass transportation options – even public restrooms – are all clearly designated.

“This project took quite a few years to produce, and I’ll never forget the day early on when my husband Jim discovered Ortelius by doing a search for cartography software online,” said Donna Schmitt about using Ortelius. “He was so thrilled to find it, and it made the process so much easier and the end-result so much more professional than anything he could have done by hand.”

Simple and easy to read, visitors will understand the layout of each neighborhood at a glance and see exactly where the action is. This book even goes a step further in taking the stress out of finding your way around Manhattan by offering detailed diagrams of some of New York’s most confusing underground places – Penn Station, Grand Central Terminal, Times Square Subway Station, Fulton Street Subway Station, Rockefeller Center Lower Level Concourse, and many more. Corridors, stairways, train platforms, mezzanines, and entrances/exits are all laid out in relation to the streets and buildings above.

If you’re headed to the Big Apple, don’t leave this one behind!
