Hello Justiceiro! Welcome to Wikitravel. Please take a sec to look at our copyleft and policies and guidelines, but feel free to plunge forward and edit some pages. Scanning the Manual of style, especially the article templates, can give you a good idea of how we like articles formatted. If you need help, check out Wikitravel:Help, and if you need some info not on there, post a message in the travellers' pub.

Thanks for your contributions. Unfortunately it looks like Image:NEWYORKAREA.jpg is not available under a free license that complies with Wikitravel:Copyleft, so it has been recommended for deletion. All content on Wikitravel must be freely licensed by the creator, and Google maps unfortunately don't meet that criteria. Thanks for your other contributions, however, and hopefully we'll see more! -- Ryan 15:43, 10 July 2006 (EDT)

Image:NEWYORKAREA.jpg is available for a free license, because I created that image myself. I am releasing it to the public domain by placing it on wikitravel.
While the rail lines are obviously your own work, the underlying satellite image has copyright notices indicating that it is from either Google Earth or Google Maps, and those images are copyrighted and not freely licensed - see WikiPedia:Wikipedia:Help_desk/Archive_54#Copyright_Issues for a discussion. If you think that this image may be an exception, please discuss on Wikitravel:Votes for deletion#Image:NEWYORKAREA.jpg. Alternatively, if you're interested in creating a map that can be used here see Wikitravel:How to draw a map. -- Ryan 15:56, 10 July 2006 (EDT)
I have added a map according to your recommended procedures Ryan Davis
Wow, that was fast, thanks! The new map looks great! -- Ryan 01:47, 11 July 2006 (EDT)
