New street maps, strategically located near popular subway stations, will help New Yorkers explore their city.

City officials say the 7-foot high maps are intended to help residents pick out landmarks they may not be aware of.
According to the New York Post, they’re also meant to help New Yorkers get their bearings.

The Department of Transportation says it hopes the maps encourage “domestic tourism.”

The $6 million program will feature 150 maps in the Fashion District; Chinatown; Long Island City, Queens; and Prospect Heights/Crown Heights, Brooklyn; plus another 300 at bike share stations in Manhattan below 59th St. and part of Brooklyn.

All the maps will be up by the spring.
