Article Short description
Self-guided tour maps for exploring New York are a great option for anyone wanting to see the sights without hiring a guide. The maps include options for cycling, exploring art and skyscrapers, visiting the Bronx and even finding public restrooms. The Hudson County Department of Culture and Heritage has created a skyline map to help tourists identify buildings along the river, while Dr. Vansu Im, a professor at Meharry University, has produced a map showing all open public toilets in New York City. The maps can be downloaded for free or picked up from most stores, libraries and community centers.
Online maps that will make walking around New York more interesting and convenient
We all love New York and love to walk around it. But sometimes you want to see something new, but you don’t want to hire a guide (we have been living in New York for a long time, what a guide). Or you are a tourist who loves adventure and does not want to go in crowds to places where all visitors are usually taken. This is where maps for self-tours around New York come in handy. We have collected several maps for a variety of occasions (there is also a map of the toilets, don’t worry). You only need to choose a card and go for a walk. Good luck!
So, the first card is a bicycle one. Walking around New York is fun, but cycling is more fun and you can see more.
You can download it from the link. Absolutely free.
And if you want a hard copy, free copies are available at most stores throughout the city, as well as at many libraries and community centers.
In addition, some of the most popular and beautiful cycling routes are available on the site. You can download them as separate files:
Well, we rode a bicycle on the ground, it’s time to climb up. Not literally, of course.
On this topic:
The Hudson County Department of Culture and Heritage has prepared several maps for self-guided tours of Manhattan skyline locations: Union City, Weehawken, Hoboken, Jersey City, and Liberty Park.
The map will help you identify each building located on the banks of the Hudson River.
The stripes on the map show the view from the Hudson County waterfront. It also indicates the proximity to the main attractions of New York for travelers. There are also the most famous buildings of the New York skyline on the map, such as the Statue of Liberty, the Empire State Building, the Chrysler Building, as well as some of the buildings surrounding these attractions, such as the Woolworth Building, Hudson Yards and the Tetrahedron Building.
You can download the map from the link.
Although this card causes a slight chuckle, this does not make it any less useful.
Finding an open restroom while walking the streets of New York has always been a problem. Dr. Vansu Im, a professor at Meharry University, has created an incredibly useful map. It shows all open toilets in New York.
Check out the map and find restrooms in your area here.
If you need a special toilet in a trendy hotel or a relatively secluded bookstore, you can use the filter option and browse through the six categories outlined in the document, from public outdoor toilets to restrooms in fast food restaurants, coffee shops, and more.
If you want to take a walk around the Bronx, a map from NYC Go has also been developed for this occasion.
There are no ready-made routes here, but you can choose the places you want to visit and get directions there. It is very easy to understand the map, all interesting places are marked with multi-colored circles, each color is responsible for its own theme:
- light pink – outdoor recreation;
- pink – restaurants and cafes;
- light purple – shopping;
- purple – museums and galleries;
- green – night entertainment;
- brown – attractions and entertainment;
- black – art (theater, performances, performances);
- blue – sports stadiums and events;
- blue – tours and excursions.
The map can be found at the link.
