I'm trying to create a travel book and website for tourists to NYC. Are there any resources I can use for free or very low cost in regards to the street maps in the printed version, especially those including subway and/or bus stops (nice, but not required).

MTA Bus Maps: Looking for cached images or scans of hard copy NYC MTA bus maps. MTA website is not loading maps on it's temporary website. Would prefer recent 2012 maps. Have found some on mappery.com am unsure of accuracy.

In the late '90s, I went up to the top of the world trade center several times. One of the more unusual things I noticed was a first world war era biplane sitting on top of a building. I've recently tried to find more information on the unusual decoration and am coming up short. A number of pages reference a SopwithCamel sitting on top of 77waterstreet. The yahoo map location for 77 water street seems too close to the water to match my memory. I though the plane was in the middle of a cluster of buildings.
Are there multiple decorative planes on top of buildings in lower manhattan (not counting helipads)? What other hidden oddities lurk on top of the world's skyscrapers? [more inside]
