Launched in 2010, CityMaps has all kinds of social-this and social-that features that help you socialize. Or something. But the interesting part, an unlike other maps, is that it lists each business with their logo, giving you an amazingly helpful visual overview of what's where. Currently, only maps for New York (shown), San Francisco, and (surprisingly) Austin are available. The logo tapestry in the New York map is quite amazing. Plus, if the restroom at a Starbucks has a long line you can quickly see where the next Starbucks is and make a run for it.
