  • StreetSmart laminated fold-out city street map with BART and downtown detail
Product Description:

"VanDam's newly revised StreetSmart SAN FRANCISCO edition maps all of San Francisco at an immensely legible scale of 1:31,000 complete with 3-D building illustrations. Clear information design allows you to read the map from three feet away and has earned VanDam maps a place in the MoMA Collection. The map is film-laminated on both sides, accordion folded and pocket size.

Coverage:

San Francisco City Street Map 1:31,000; Bay Area Overview Map: 1:400,000; Metro BART/MUNI Transit Map

Dimensions: 4” x 9” folded, 9” x 24” unfolded, fits into shirt pocket or purse.

StreetSmart SAN FRANCISCO is so legible you will instantly understand how the Marina connects with Marin, SOMA with Sunset, Presidio with Pacific Heights, MidMarket with the Mission, Tenderloin with Telegraph Hill , and the China Basin with Japantown. From God's perspective to the most minute alleys our map will be a treasured companion during your stay.

StreetSmart SAN FRANCISCO let's you experience the authentic SF spirit. Hike the Presidio trails – Coastal, Presidio Bluffs and/or Ecology – which are clearly marked with facilities, and viewing sights, then indulge in a Japanese bath and food at Onsen in the Tenderloin. After your soak, savor a soju cocktail and a bowl of udon while pondering a Tale of Two Cities. No other US city exhibits such a wide gulf between the haves and have-nots especially in the rebranded MidMarket area formerly known as the Tenderloin. Visit the spectacular reinvention of SFMOMA in SOMA then explore the rooftop park at the new Transbay Transit Center and neighborhood to get your fill of local architecture. Some say it's SF's answer to NYC's Grand Central Terminal. Your Embarcadero hike can start at the SF Ferry Building, the grand marketplace and European-style food hall, a feast for the senses and open daily from 9 AM – 7 PM. Check on author readings at Book Passage, insect snacks at La Cocina or Peruvian aji amarillo chiles before heading up to the Exploratorium at Pier 15 for some playfully serious science. Chez Panisse, Alice Water's acclaimed Berkely food temple in offers both a prix-fixe dinner downstairs and a casual lunch service in the upstairs cafe worth the trip to the East Bay without breaking the bank.

San Francisco, the great city of booms, light and reinvention is unique in many ways: A boomtown since the 1849 Gold Rush it is now mecca for techies, foodies and bums.

StreetSmart SAN FRANCISCO is updated yearly and most current. Simplicity reigns supreme in information design to make complex cities clear and understandable. Our typography creates character and reveals the true bones of the city. VanDam uses a letter grid to identify locations on maps - no confusing and cluttering K-28 or V-34s - its just the city from A-Z. Our covers map the icons of each city and turn them into collectible graphic art. Each sleek and laminated city map package opens to 24"" x 9"" and then easily folds down to 4"" x 9"" to snuggly fit into a shirt pocket or purse. Gain instant SF StreetSmarts and a sexy souvenir to boot! "
