streetwise map Nov 9, 2006
Great series of maps for residents and tourists. Very detailed but extremely compact (though still legible), laminated, folds easily. It can be used quite subtly, so you don't look lost (giving the apperance of a goofy out-of-towner, or worse, a safety issue.)
Chicago Streetwise features: -Main map (north to Lakeview, south to Hyde park, west to Ukranian Village) -Downtown map -neighboring counties road map -Hyde Park/Kenwood detail -CTA/Metra train lines -street and landmark index
On the main map, it identifies train stops (but unfortunately no busstop info, which may be helpful), street numbers, various important buildings (landmarks, colleges, some hotels, etc.).
If you are planning on visitng Chicago, or have just moved to the area, look no further than this map.
Streetwise Chicago (Streetwise S.) (Map) Jul 25, 2006
This map does not show any of the parts of Chicago that I am interested in - mainly anything very far west of downtown. I would say that this item is not useful at all and a total waste of my money.
There's got to be better out there. Sep 23, 2004
I recently moved back to Chicago and needed a map as a refresher. I was very disappointed when I received this map. It's great and handy, unfortunately it didn't cover the city. The map didn't show Bucktown or anything West but included all of the Southside. I was looking at moving into an area that I didn't have a map of!!! If you want to see any of Bucktown, Wickerpark or Logan Square do not buy this map.
