A map like this, though preferably with Randalls and Wards Island, is what I would like:

Hudlander:
your mentioning of Randalls and Wards Islands reminds me of when crossing the Harlem River on the RFK Bridge from Randalls Island to Manhattan Island, there's a sign posted that says "Welcome to Manhattan" and whoever the boro president is. So if I'm going the other direction, shouldn't there then be a sign saying "Welcome to Randalls Island" and the name of the boro president there, too?

(And please hold the lectures about R&W Islands being part of Manhattan. Yes, I know that. That's my point. The sign doesn't belong there.)
(this last point is not directed to Hudlander).

I want one of those too. The map I mentioned above has a good map of Manhattan, but I would like something all in one piece.

The Streetwise map I suggested at the beginning of the thread looks like this one. Barnes and Noble.

Slightly off-topic, but a few years ago, I was in a shop in Old Town Alexandria, Virginia. There was a shop with a lot of (expensive) paintings of ships for sale as well as old maps, very cool stuff to look at. I got to chatting with the storekeeper, and mentioned that I am of Dutch descent and maybe that's why the paintings of ships and maps appealed to me, and I also must have mentioned that I work in NYC.

Her eyes lit up and she asked if I wanted to see something. She put on white cotton gloves and went over to one of those old-time wooden chests with the shallow drawers and opened one and showed me a map, in Dutch, from the 1600s, of the Hudson, Manhattan, Staten Island, and northeastern NJ. It was amazing to look at.

It was also for sale, $17,000. A bit out of my price range, alas.

The shop went out of business since then. Wonder who has the map now.
