These are SO much better than an MTA subway map. We got a peek at a new book of dozens of NYC maps, You Are Here: NYC: Mapping the Soul of the City, by Katharine Harmon. And it's seriously awesome: There's everything from a nerd’s guide to the city to a breakdown of the totally unrealistic apartments on Friends.
Take a look at some of our favorites below, and then you decide which is cooler: historical maps, futuristic designs or maps made out of jelly. And if you want even more maps, you can get the entire book here.
