Screen shot from Google Maps not good enough?
You can de-saturate it in Photoshop or Gimp
or whatever.

It is good enough in terms of quality but not the
enjoyment of work. I know it is possible to do the way
I do it, so I'm gonna keep looking...

You can get vector representations of just about any place on earth from
Open Street Map.

You'll have to do some work to figure out how to get what you need, but
it's probably the best open-source map data that's available.
