[BCAB] Maps

Dear Colin 
I think what is being suggested is that you do not need to necessarily use Maps but instead simply identify areas of New Yourk you are interested to visit first.
For example central Park.
Then open a Google Search on your PC.
Now in the search field type Accomodation next to Central Park  New York or Accommodation next to Empire State building  New York or Accomodation next to Haarlem new York and so on.
The suggestion is that you will get information on the distance involved from the accommodation to the area you are interested in.
Never tried this myself but  just interpreting the email.

Hi - Thanks for your response, I am afraid I don't understand your message but I am sure it would be very useful if I did understand it.
Please clarify 
Thanks

 Hi Colin,
You don’t need any nap for that but just type on Google accommodation next to… Whatever location you go to visit. You will have good results, including the distance from the required location.
