NYC streets maps to encourage "domestic tourism"

Posted: Updated:

NEW YORK (AP) - 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 saying art is autobiographical takes on a whole new meaning when your canvas is a fully nude human body, as it is for artist Andy Golub. Andy along with 30 other artists and 45 Technicolor models paraded around several Manhattan hotspots over the weekend for NYC Body Painting day. Believe or not, this is completely legal in New York City.
