MapEasy a travel publishing company located in Wainscott, New York. The company was founded in 1990, starting with 3 titles, and currently produces maps and other travel content for over 150 cities worldwide.[1]

The company's maps have received generally favorable reviews from major publications. The New York Times has described the maps as "friendly" but "with attitude",[2] while the Washington Post has called them "charmingly illustrated and elegantly hand-lettered".[3] Reviews have not always been positive, as one reviewer from about.com, while giving the map generally favorable ratings, found the San Francisco map "too busy".[4]
