Help me find out more about photographic route atlases

Where to Buy Geographia 5 Borough Street Atlas?

Has anyone seen the Geographia 5 Borough Street Atlas for sale anywhere in Queens or Long Island? I could order it from Barnes&Noble, but I'm in a big hurry (and fwiw all their stores are "out of stock"). To make this of interest to more than just myself, I'll note that Geographia's atlas is vastly better than the much more common Rand MacNally one (though it's also sorely in need of an update).
