Where can I find free NYC street maps for a for-profit travel book?

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).

Is this a thing? [more inside]

Map my contacts

Google Maps is great but I wonder if I can input my contacts so that all of them appear on a map that I can look up as I travel about the world. Is there another program that does this or will I have to do it by hand?
