Reviews - What do customers think about STREETWISE® Compact Boston?
should have listened Jul 31, 2008
I have several of these maps. They are great, laminated. I like them because you can use a laundry crayon to write on them, easily wiping clean when done. However this map is a few inches smaller than what you buy in a Borders or Barnes and Noble bookstore. It is difficult to read. Manageable but difficult. Buy it elsewhere.
Too small ! Jan 11, 2007
The print on this map is just way too small for over-40 eyes! So if you're in that age group...forget this map.
A good Boston resource, but only for downtown. Oct 14, 2001
Admittedly, that's all these maps are supposed to be for, but still, given the importance of Cambridge to the greater Boston area, a bit more effort might have been made to squeeze in more of it - at least up to Harvard Square. That's a fairly minor quibble, though, and this map shows the usual Streetwise quality in all other respects. The colors of the MBTA subway lines on the map aren't quite right, but they're close enough for government work, and the street index is its usual indispensible self. If you're coming to Boston, snag one of these - they're much hardier than paper maps, and very clear.
