VanDam's 2018 NYC Classic Shopping UNFOLDS® maps all top attractions, hotels, major architecture, colleges, concert halls, and the best destination shops unique to NYC. Each map unfolds to 18 times times its original size, then refolds automatically when the covers are closed. It is like an atlas in the palm of your hand. The map is laminated for durability and easily fits into a shirt-pocket or purse. Size open: 8.5" x 11" per section; 3.25" x 7" closed. NYC Classic Shopping UNFOLDS® is the original patented pop-up map and a design classic in the MoMA Design Collection.
Contents: Manhattan Street Map at 1:15,000 scale in three pop-up sections of Downtown, Midtown and Uptown covering Manhattan from the Battery to Harlem. The Manhattan Subway Map is on back cover. There is an easy-to-understand Manhattan address finder. All listings have the corresponding subway line to get you to your destination quickly. Like New Yorkers the map divides Manhattan into three parts: Downtown, Midtown and Uptown. You will navigate Manhattan with confidence and style as you head from brunch in Tribeca to a matinee in Times Square, hike the Brooklyn Bridge from Brooklyn Bridge Park to the 9/11 Memorial Downtown (best at sunset), explore the West Side from Chelsea Market on the High Line to the new Hudson Yards and Lincoln Center beyond, "do the Met," Neue Galerie and Guggenheim on Museum Mile and refine your birding life list in Central Park from your waterside table at the Loeb Boathouse. NYC Classic Shopping UNFOLDS® is your companion to easily navigate the complexity of shopping Manhattan. Rather than fidget with your phone, simply snap your wrist and the map pops open for use. Close the cover and the map neatly tucks away. The New York Times calls it "A Map that is More than A Map." It is origami which helps you move like a New Yorker. NYC Classic Shopping UNFOLDS® shows all subway stops in context right on the map by line so that you understand the system as well as the local detail. It is updated twice a year and is the most current map available. The map designer Stephan Van Dam has lived in Manhattan for 40 years and knows the city inside out. NYC Classic Shopping UNFOLDS® has eminently clear information design which allows users to read the map from three feet away. Simplicity reigns supreme in information design to make complex cities clear and understandable. Our typography creates character and reveals the true bones of the city. Our covers map the icons of each city and turn them into collectible graphic art. Gain instant NYC StreetSmarts and a sexy souvenir to boot!

THE NEW YORK TIMES: Style Makers; Stephan Van Dam, Map Publisher
Stephan Van Dam's career as a map publisher and design entrepreneur began with origami. Such was his fascination with the Japanese art of paper folding that the Swiss-born designer, 30 years old, came up with ''The World Unfolds,'' an award-winning series of maps that presented the lay of the land in major cities in the United States in tidy, fold-up booklets small enough to put in a purse.
Mr. Van Dam's maps hold both a United States patent and a copyright as kinetic sculpture. Now his publishing house in Manhattan has moved on to what the designer likes to call ''a hip approach to looking at the cosmos.''
His pop-up ''Eco- Guides'' to the ocean, desert, Moon, Mars, universe and rain forest are whimsical, brightly colored investigations of the wonders of earth and sky. They are educational tools as well as graphic design with a social conscience.
Rand McNally he is not. ''We feel information has a lot of play value,'' Mr. Van Dam explained. ''We want to show that there's more than one way to understand something. Hopefully, the guides will make the information more accessible as well as excite, confront, provoke and engage the reader.''
Billed as ''Handy in the Jungle, Handsome in Your Study,'' the ''Rain Forest Unfolds'' guide includes pop-up maps of flora and fauna, rain forest facts and myths and stories. The ''Eco-Guides'' are $9.95 and are sold in museum shops and major bookstore chains.
Mr. Van Dam's own little corner in the map-publishing world is in the meat-market area of Manhattan. That, perhaps, is fate. ''We look down at the bone trucks and think about the cosmos,'' he said. --Patricia Leigh Brown, The New York Times
"The best innovation in map design since the globe was flattened on to paper." --Diversion Magazine
"A magical series...ingenious." --Travel and Leisure Magazine
