Remember this really cool London Print by Jim Datz at Pedlars? Well, the same artist is behind the latest Herb Lester Associates vintage-style map, going by the name of Where The Sidewalk Ends: How to find old New York.

Yes, following on from the likes of the 1960s London, You Are Here and May We Help You? maps, this is the firsr trip outside the Uk, with Datz providing the vintage-style imagery for what's described as 'a guide to the New York you’ve always wanted to see but feared might have disappeared for good'.

Expect Edward Hopper diners and down-at-heel dive bars, overstocked grocery stores and mountainous pastrami sandwiches. From Patsy’s Pizzeria in Harlem, to the Nom Wah Tea Parlor in Chinatown, taking in along the way Katz's, the '21' Club and McSorley's Old Ale House to name just a few places. It is A3 (297x420mm) folded to A6 (105x148mm), and litho printed on recycled paper. Price? Just £3.
