Mapping New York

 Permanent link   All Posts

NYCSmartphoneMap(1)NYC & Company is partnering with CityMaps, a New York-based startup, to launch a smartphone app that enables users to use a map to navigate New York using names and company logos, and to filter content from nearly 90,000 restaurants, stores, attractions, hotels and bars.

The free app, called NYC Map, is available for download from iTunes.

"NYC Map's heavy use of widely recognized logos, symbol and brands is particularly helpful for our non-native English speakers looking to get around the city," said NYC & Company CEO George Fertita.

NYC Map highlights daily deals from sites like Groupon and Living Social, and it includes restaurant reservation capabilities from OpenTable. Social components include real-time tweets from businesses, FourSquare check-ins and user photos, NYC & Company said.

Future plans include adding map filters for tour groups and conventions.
