New York City Street Map
There are many versions of New York City Street Maps and Subway Maps. Free, paid and online interactive. It generally takes a combination of all of these maps to navigate NYC, but here are a few shortcuts.

Combined New York City Street and Subway Maps are usually the most difficult to find - most maps have one or the other. Here is my favorite pick for the best online New York City Street and Subway Map.

A New York City Street Map is only a map – it doesn’t tell you how to get around the city. Unlike most driving cities that use a map program or GPS, in New York City, we use HopStop, designed for public transportation in major cities. See the NYC Subway Map page for Subway information and step-by-step instructions on using HopStop.
Pay attention to how you exit the Subway (not just the stop to get off the train), as it is important to know which exit to use out of the station. You should also map a reverse route, as sometimes the ways to go and return are not the same (kind of like one-way streets).
NYC Insider Tip – New York City Streets
When street numbers go UP (51st, 52nd, 53rd), you are going NORTH. So, if for any reason you leave the wrong subway exit and are supposed to be going North, but the street numbers are going down, turn around.
One more tip – PLEASE, do not stop and pull out your New York City Street map at the very top of the subway stairs to try and figure out where you are…millions of people are standing behind you with places to go. How would you feel if 1 million people were blocking your driveway while you were trying to get work? Please step to a less crowded area so they can get out of the subway.

Best New York City Street Map – Pocket Size
This is my favorite NYC Street Map. I give this map to every friend who visits me – and I carry a bunch around to give to visitors whom I meet. The company, Anton Miles, also has a Subway Map of New York. There are a variety of these maps, including bus, subway and street, but I carry the Lower Manhattan Map everywhere with me.
Don’t be fooled, not even most taxi drivers know every street in Lower Manhattan – since NYC was built from the Southern Tip (Statue of Liberty and Financial District) going North, urban planning did not have it’s effect until roughly the Union Square area (14th Street and up).
You may also purchase these New York City Street maps at the New York Transit Museum in Grand Central Station for about $1.00 each.
Using the Subway
Visit the Metropolitan Transit Authority (MTA), their special section meant for visitors, and their How to Use the Subway page. MTA is the government organization that runs all of New York City’s Public Transportation. They have all the information you need to know about Metrocards (the card you need to pay and use the subway). There is a New York City Street Map and subway map posted on the wall of almost every subway station, so you can always check on your way in or out. If there is someone at the ticket booth, they also have a free foldable map for you to carry.
Is the subway safe?
Since 2005, New York City has had the lowest crime rate of the 25 largest US cities (check more interesting facts about New York City). In the main parts of Manhattan, the subway is almost always safe. I use it 24/7 and never have any issues, but if you want to play it really safe, I recommended not using it between about midnight and 5:00am.
