Main Midtown Manhattan Map 1:16,000

More than just the center of Manhattan, the STREETWISE® Midtown Manhattan map is an exquisitely detailed view of Manhattan from Washington Square Park and 4th Street up to 125th Street in Harlem; from the East River where the United Nations sits moving west across town to the Hudson River where you will find the Jacob Javits Convention Center. Nearly 500 hundred sites within this midtown Manhattan map grid are identified, color-coded and indexed, including performance halls, cinemas, colleges, hotels, museums, office buildings, and major department stores.

Finding a theatre is simplified with the inset map of the theatre district featuring 38 distinct venues. Hotels are clearly indicated on the main midtown map so you’ll know exactly how to orient yourself if you’re visiting from out of town. An inset addresses finder tells you where to find address for both cross town streets and North-South Avenues. An index of named streets is also included.

Our pocket size map of Midtown Manhattan is laminated for durability and accordion folding for effortless use. The STREETWISE® Midtown Manhattan map is one of many detailed and easy-to-read city street maps designed and published by STREETWISE®. Buy your STREETWISE® Midtown map today and you too can navigate Midtown like a native.

About STREETWISE® Maps

STREETWISE® is the first map to be designed with modern graphics and is the originator of the laminated, accordion-fold map format. We've set the standard that every map company has imitated but never duplicated. Our mission is to make you feel comfortable, to make you feel safe in a place where you've never been before and to enable you to experience a familiar place more fully.

The company was founded in 1984 by Michael Brown, who had been in international publishing for many years, setting up subsidiaries for textbook publishers. In the 1970's, Brown traveled extensively throughout Africa, India, the Middle East and Southeast Asia. Brown would take a large paper map, cut out the city center, folded it up and slip it into his pocket, thus preventing him from looking like a tourist in areas where discretion is the better part of travel. This was his tool for surviving.

After many years on the road, Brown settled back in New York and decided to start his own business, based on the adaptations he had made to maps in his travels. His goal was to give someone the ability to navigate easily in unfamiliar terrain.

He started with a new map format: the accordion fold. Such a simple idea, but at the time it was revolutionary. No more struggling to fold an awkward, oversized paper map. This new format would enable the user to blend in like a native, instead of stick out like a tourist. Brown then added lamination to ensure that the map would be a lasting tool.

More important than the format was the design of the map itself. It had to be a map that not only succeeded above and beyond any map he had used, but was esthetically appealing as well. The look of it had to be as striking as the functionality. Color was introduced in a way that was never seen before in a map - vivid purple for water, soothing gray for the background of street grids, gold to highlight elements of the map. Clarity, conciseness and convenience in a very stylish package.

Building the business was a 24 hour job. Brown sold the maps during the day, zipping around Manhattan making deliveries on his Harley Davidson. At night he packed the orders and did the design work. More titles were added, each title requiring months of research and design.

Today, STREETWISE® produces over 130 titles for major destinations, regions and countries throughout the United States, Canada, Mexico, Australia, Europe, the United Kingdom and Asia. We have grown from the back of a motorcycle to selling millions of maps around the world.

Yet each title is still painstakingly researched and updated. STREETWISE® is one of the only, if not THE only map company that conducts research by walking or driving an area to ensure accuracy. After all, what good is the map if what you hold in your hands doesn't match what you see on the street sign? This lengthy fact checking results in superior accuracy; in effect, we've done the work, now you have the adventure.

In the end, it's not about the map, it's about getting out and finding your own authentic experience wherever you go. It's about being in a city or a region and discovering things that you never thought you would find. You can do this if you have confidence and you have confidence if you have a great map. STREETWISE® is the great map that you need.

    Workhorse of a map

    I purchased this map for a 4 day trip to Manhattan with my daughter. We used it all the time. My 16 year old would occasionally use the subway app that we downloaded on our iphone, but mainly we used this little map! We were staying in the Upper West Side so it was great for us. Loved that it had the Theater District in detail, seeing the subway lines mapped out was extremely helpful, and just being able to quickly refer to the street layout in general. Most likely would have also purchased the map that covered lower Manhattan, but it wasn't in stock at the B&N store I was in. I purchased it on a whim and was glad I did! A lot packed into a small package, sturdy, easy to use.

    Gteat Map

    I have bought three of these maps during the years I have been traveling to New York City. I have given two to friends and recently bought another one that has been updated to the current year and plan to take it back with me to the city whenever I go.It has helped me many times to find my way around and to guide others also. I like that it is a hard and glossy map that folds easily and fits neatly into my purse. I rely on it whenever I try to find a new location or place to eat or shop.
