Hi Col

I would have an idea of the places and areas you want to visit before going (use the internet & this site to help you) but then pay a visit to The Times Square Visitor Centre just up from TGI Fridays you'll get a gr8 free map from there, you get them from the main desk (though we were given the same one when we checked into our hotel.) We had several books before we went that had maps in, but the freebie one was the only one we used!! At the end of our trip it was ragged around the edges but this was testiment to how much we'd actually used it. Hope this helps.

Enjoy your trip!!

I like the "Streetwise" maps, I've got a collection of about 8 of them now.

I like them because they're laminated and fold up enough to be put in a pocket.

You could take a look at The New York Mapguide: The Essential Guide to Manhattan by Michael Middleditch

Available on Amazon. I would post a link but it is ridiculously long!

I would also go with The New York Mapguide, like ebabe69 above. It's in book form, like a small A-Z and has everything marked on there. You can buy it online, but I got mine off the shelf at Waterstones. If they don't have it in, they will order it for you.

The map for the entire subway system is available free in any station. A worthwhile pickup

I just bought the Moleksine NYC guide. It is small and compact and very user friendly. I purchased it on the recommendation of another poster. Tons of them for sale on ebay.
