Maps of New York

There are a million reasons to go to New York City (other than the fireworks this weekend). The sights, the sounds, the food, the shows. But what if you’re looking for something very specific, and a regular street map won’t do? Here are a few maps for New York visitors to check out when they have a more precise itinerary for the Big Apple.

The New York City Coffee Map has details on where to find the best cup o’ joe in the city. Check out the Google map or click on specific neighborhoods for a listing of coffee shops in the area.

NewYorkPass.com has an interesting map of the city, which includes museums, theaters and other places of interest. The map is intended for holders of the New York Pass (which, for a certain amount per day, gives free admission and discounts to a plethora of places), and highlights places that give “behind the scenes tours” (like an NBC Studio Tour) for its holders. But even if you don’t buy the pass, the map is still a good reference of the city’s biggest attractions.

The New York subway map is a must for tourists who don’t want to look like clueless tourists.

Central Park has a great interactiveinteractive map that highlights the history of the park as well as certain attractions that a visitor might miss when simply strolling through.

Of course, no one could go a day in New York City without having to use the restroom. The NYC Public Toilet Map has a detailed map of 250 public restrooms in the city. The foldable, pocket-sized map cost $2 (plus .50 shipping fee) and is a must for parents traveling with children.
