NYC Insider Map and Guide to Manhattan

I wanted to let you know how much I enjoy the insider guide and maps. It is exactly what I was looking for and trying to search the internet for weeks and still did not find even a fraction of what you have in your guide. Even something as simple what direction avenues and streets run was not something I thought of or found any information on but is very important. Exactly what I was looking for. Don’t waste your time researching and trying to find all this information online when you can get it in the insiders guide. Wonderfully put together and extremely helpful. Thank you. - Mary Margaret (October 2018)
