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.
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.
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.
