Cuts spur new New York subway map
New York is getting a new subway map.
Budget cuts have led to the consolidation of several lines, such as the W and Q and, most interestingly, the V and M, which is turning the M from brown to orange and giving riders from parts of Brooklyn a one-seat ride to Midtown.
But, as the New York Times explains, the MTA has also taken the opportunity to tweak its map to add some information, delete some other distracting information, and make Manhattan far wider than in reality while making Staten Island much smaller.
Second Avenue Sagas juxtaposed several parts of the map with their previous incarnations to illustrate some of the most meaningful changes.
- DC has almost no white residents without college degrees. (It's a different story for black residents.)
- What's so great about the Purple Line, anyway?
- I don't care what some people say: DC has great transportation options.
- The biggest beneficiaries of housing subsidies? The wealthy.
- Clearly we need to have more happy hours in Prince George's
- Metro badly needs culture change, everyone agrees. Can it pull it off?
- Does DC want boring architecture? Sort of.
