The Manhattan side needs little plumping; it is an excellent map of the core of New York City at a generous scale of 1:12,000 scale. This enables the city to be shown in an easy-to-read format, to show one-way streets, and to portray the subway lines that snake under the surface. Of course, hotels, restaurants, scenic attractions, public buildings, and parks are well-portrayed. The other side of the sheet is a brilliant map of the State of New York, which stretches from the Canadian border to Pennsylvania, and from the eastern extent of Long Island to Buffalo.
By the shape of the state, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and goodly portions of Vermont and New Hampshire, as well as northern New Jersey, are shown. Most visitors to the state either arrive from Canada or via the Interstates from other parts of the USA. While most users of our Manhattan map probably fly into one of NYC’s airports, this map provides the opportunity for visitors to extend their time in the area to enjoy the many charms of the State. The Hudson Valley, extending northwards to Albany, the state capital, is loaded with historical points of interest, such as the Huguenot houses near Poughkeepsie, or the Vanderbilt mansion or the homes of Eleanor Roosevelt or the Van Burens.
A little to the west is the site of the 1969 Woodstock Festival, and further west still is the home of Corning glass. Naturally, no visit would be complete without seeing Niagara Falls, in the State’s far west. Interestingly, this part of the State did not become part of the USA until 1796, when the British moved the capital of British North America (the formal name for Canada in those days) to Fort George, and then to an unsettled area on the north shore of Lake Ontario, which became Toronto.
