Second City Panamap

View the map from one angle and you'll see the streets. Tilt it and you see the neighbourhoods. Tilt it more and you see the bus and subway lines. I bought the Manhattan map a few years ago. Now there's a Second City version.

I find this map to be more entertaining than useful. Because it's a folding map, it's almost impossible to hold the entire map on the same plane. So I usually end up with each unfolded section of the map displaying a different function, and I can only examine one section at a time. Nice idea that doesn't work in practice.
