Need a gift for the New Yorker who has it all? How about this fun map from the Parks Department that plots NYC parks in the style of a traditional subway map? Not only can you peruse the map online, but just for the holiday season, limited-edition, full-size posters of “Next Stop: NYC Parks” are available for purchase.
Online, you can zoom in on the map to reveal the parks. There’s also a “key” with statistics related to NYC’s 30,000 acres of parks, such as 14 miles of beaches, 2.6 million trees, 309 miles of hiking trails, and 70 dog runs.
The 18″ x 24″ posters cost $28 and are available at the NYC Parks Pop-Up Holiday Shop at the Union Square Holiday Market, which is open until 4pm on December 24th.
