I got this along with the Manhattan map from Streetwise. The bus map side is included on their regular Manhattan map but the stand alone subway map is not so this was very convenient because of its size. I prefer to not stare at the maps on the wall in the subway cars (hey look everybody I'm a tourist) nor do i want to broadcast I have an iPhone either trying to look for directions. The lamination takes a real beating, i could probably use this a thousand times without it ripping. Highly recommended along with their Manhattan map for more coverage. Always been satisfied with Streetwise.

I visited NYC this past fall, and am planning another trip in April. I had a terrible time trying to get subway information to load on my smart phone while in NY (I swear they must have cell phone jammers near the Statue of Liberty), so I thought I'd go ahead and get this map. I love the size. It is small enough that it will fit in a pocket. It is also very discreet, so I won't be walking around with a 2' x 2' map screaming "I'm a tourist!" I hate having to use the big map on the subway wall and trying to read the maps in the subway cars while sitting 8 feet away from them. I think this map will be a huge asset and I cannot wait to use it.

This was extremely helpful to have during our recent visit to NYC. It was so worth the price because it saved us time and aggravation over which subway we were supposed to be taking. It was so easy to figure out which subway to take. I feel as though we got to see so many more sights because we knew how to get from one place to another. I like that it is laminated and will last for many more trips to NYS. I would not go to NYC without this!!!!!!

This little guide got us around easily on our first trip to NY. It's laid out much clearer and easier than the maps you can get off the MTA site and got us as close to our destinations as possible. Would definitely recommend.

It's just a very cool idea to put the subway and bus lines into such a little, well made map! Good to read, protected against rain and very handy. Just highly recommended to any travellers.

Perfect size. Exactly what is needed. Color coordinated to make it easy to read. I recommended it for all who don't know the subway system.

My daughter and I used the laminated bus and subway map of NYC on a daily basis during our 4-day visit. Instead of taking a tour bus, we decided to navigate the city on our own. We felt safe (officers are well placed on nearly every street) and were were confident as we only traveled subway during the day and walked in areas near our hotel(Times Square) at night. The maps bright colors were easily seen at night in the well-lighted streets.

The subway side was best used to direct us to transfer stops. We often jumped from subway to bus because we could plan out our destination prior to leaving the hotel each day. The paper maps of the city failed us in the rain but this map survived. The fonts are small and my daughters sharp eyes worked better than mine to locate things quickly.

We felt confident with this map in conjunction with the City Park map. We walked the entire park - also in the rain.
