The Evolution of the New York Subway Map


The New York subway is one of those connecting systems that helps us make sense of the complex urbanscape of the Big Apple. Ben Popper at Men’s Vogue shares the evolution of this cartographic beauty that tends to make complex connections decipherable to the common New Yorker (and the confused tourist).

The mashup map of of the Vignelli map and the current edition designed by Eddie Jabbour is one of my favorite versions.
