Anybody have any maps, or map stores, you could recommend in the city?

I am looking for a full layout street map of Manhattan, just the streets, not subways.
Thanks.

I would try one of the major book stores that sometimes sell various maps.

Right. Barnes and Noble stocks a "Streetwise" brand that should have what you want and they're laminated. There are also two great travel book series that might work, especially if you're visiting for the first time: The Little Black Book of New York and the Not For Tourist Guides. Check em out and have fun!

Map stores! I'd be amazed if any were still around.
There used to be one on 7th Avenue in the Garment District -- somewhere near the "big button" sculpture.
Another was near Grand Central.
One was Rand McNally I think. Maybe Hagstrom was the other?
I think printed maps may get harder to find with the internet. I was just looking yesterday for a map of Middlesex County, NJ. on Amazon. Couldn't find one in print, although there were several "not currently available."
Looking around for others, I found maps on sale for over six hundred bucks. I'm talking something you could buy for $4.95 a few years ago. Gotta love those Amazon sellers.

If the Rand McNally store in midtown still exists, ask them.

Also, I know that the Barnes & Noble at Union Square has a section specifically on NYC, so that's a good bet.

This is a good opportunity to vent my irritation that the NYC tourism office has NOTHING along those lines.

I haven't seen Rand McNally in Midtown in quite a few years (if that's the one by GCT). Barnes & Noble definitely has them though.

Amazon has some good ones - I just got a great one called "New York City Five Burroughs."

Barnes and Noble has a whole section of printed maps in addition to its NYC guidebooks.
