Manhattan can be so much fun to navigate. It's complex enough to be a bit of a challenge, but logical enough to not be too frustrating. And it's so much fun to walk through and see the neighborhoods change in character and appearance, even while they are all so close to each other. I've been studying NYC since I was a teenager, but, understandably, living here has made my knowledge of the city much greater! I recently found this fantastic map of the neighborhoods, with street markers. Enjoy!
and there are two other fun maps where this came from (NYWhatToDo.com)
