Newyork

Remember the 1960s London map we featured a while back? Well, the same  Herb Lester Associates have produced another vintage-style map, going by the name of Where The Sidewalk Ends: How to find old New York.

This time, the imagery is the work of noted illustrator Jim Datz, with the content described as 'a guide to the New York you’ve always wanted to see but feared might have disappeared for good'. So if you want a walk in the wild side of the city, grab one of these.

Expect Edward Hopper diners and down-at-heel dive bars, overstocked grocery stores and mountainous pastrami sandwiches. From Patsy’s Pizzeria in Harlem, to the Nom Wah Tea Parlor in Chinatown, taking in along the way Katz's, the '21' Club and McSorley's Old Ale House to name just a few places. It is A3 (297x420mm) folded to A6 (105x148mm), and litho printed on recycled paper. Price? Just £3.
