NYC Subway Map

I LOVE subway maps of NYC. I am sure I have a few versions still in my closet somewhere that made the recent apartment move with me (I hope.)

Hanging in my bathroom is the Official NYC Subway Map. And yes, I do consult it from time to time before heading out. I think it is cool.

Apparently the 1972 map designed by Massimo Vignelli is being reissued and updated. Click here to see a version of it. Although considered beautiful people often got lost trying to use it. So it was updated in 1979 to include the names of neighborhoods and landmarks.
