For the first time, the Metropolitan Transportation Authority has released a map that shows overnight subway service. The MTA announced the following information about the map: The MTA has printed 25,000 copies of the map in tandem with its normal press run of a million copies of the standard subway and railroad map.

Metrofocus has a great new video on the MTA’s Subways, Bridges and Tunnels Through the Eyes of an MTA Photographer, concentrating on the big capital projects: Second Avenue Subway, 7 Line extension, and East Side Access.
With the extensive damage wrought by Hurricane Sandy on the Northeast it is unsurprising that the New York Subway has been especially hard hit. Maps represent corporeal objects, through convenient fictions; a representation which works for a majority of its users.
For more than half a century, it has stood out as a singularly vexing flaw of the subway system, a glaring inequity that has frustrated generations of riders and has even puzzled transit officials, who have wondered how the situation ever came to be.
But beginning on Tuesday, once the first travelers make their way between a B train and an uptown No. The first time New York confronted its bedrock to build a subway, in 1900, the method was “cut and cover”: nearly 8,000 laborers given to gambling, fighting and swearing were hired to pickax and dynamite their way through streets and utility lines for two miles.
Prior to construction, the NCTA erected, on a site adjacent to the future Rhode Island Avenue station, a partial full-scale mock-up of a cross section of a typical below-grade vaulted train room, complete with a segment of a full-size train car. I love the Washington Metro stations: they have aged very well in the last 40 years and are an iconic statement which is instantly recognizable as being DC.
Dave Delisle offers this awesome Toronto TTC Subway Map Super Mario 3 (poster of subway map now available) and maps for the Calgary C-Train and Vancouver Skytrain. Pedestrians on Broadway in this area can stumble upon an Ivy League university or gaze through the windows of Tom’s Restaurant, of “Seinfeld” fame. Moments later, he retrieved from his office the May 2008 copy of Men’s Vogue, featuring an updated Vignelli map “every bit as terrible a map as he designed in 1972,” to Mr. The current map is an abomination of design, the revelation of more mistakes just compounds the existing travesty. This trip underscored how many parts of the SUPERTRAIN experience need to be operating in top form in order to provide a smooth, stress-free trip.

LIRR fails (Epic Transit Fail) spectacularly when it comes to Penn Station, or what remains of Penn Station. Penn Station is perhaps the only major urban station which treats its passenger’s in such a manner.
My Accessible Transit – New York City Subway article has been found again and there are some general questions about the methodology. But the basic fact of the matter is that for those with accessibility issues, the NYC Subway is a huge barrier. Previously, those riders would have to consult the full-time map, and discern which services were not available.
The night map is available free of charge while supplies last at the New York Transit Museum, at Boerum Place & Schermerhorn Street in Downtown Brooklyn, and at the Transit Museum Annex in Grand Central Terminal. Many of the underground river crossings were fully flooded, but luckily most of the rolling stock has been spared and all of the large capital projects (East Side Access, 7th Line extension, and the Second Avenue Subway) have received little to no damage. This means that even if all cross river tunnels were dry and open for operation there would be no service due to power loss. 6 at Bleecker Street, a daily frustration will have given way to a whimsical remembrance: Here stood New York City’s fussiest subway transfer point, the one that went one way but not the other. The bedrock below Second Avenue and for much of the rest of Manhattan is schist — a hard, gray black rock shot through with sheets of glittery mica.
Their efforts were quick — they finished in four years — but their blasts smashed windows and terrorized carriage horses. They can find a copy of “Pride and Prejudice” for $2 at a stand on West 112th Street, and, four blocks south, a taco for 50 cents more.
Not that Vignell’s 1972 map is any better with oversimplification, a precious use of color and lines rendering it more art piece than functional map or diagram.
Open tennis match in Flushing Meadows (Queens), which increased my East Coast Liberal Elitism a step forward (gift baskets arriving soon!) by not only watching Tennis but also taking the SUPERTRAIN to the game.
Not only do you need efficient transportation at both departing and arriving stops, but you need logical path of travel in both departing and arriving stations so that you can make your 7:04 train.
We can only hope that the future Moynihan Station will wiggle free from the current logjam and Penn Station will again be a dignified entry to New York City.

This map was created based on data I collected from the MTA’s website based on accessible stations as of Quarter 3 of 2007.
The night map, developed in-house by the MTA, is the same size as the standard map and similarly folds into a handy pocket-sized document. Wouldn’t the mother with newborn in stroller need a different map then those without the need to lug all the accoutrement’s of childhood?
Some 500 million years ago, Manhattan was a continental coastline that collided with a group of volcanic islands known as the Taconic arc.
Vignelli for such inaccuracies as having Bowling Green north of Rector Street, said the revelations had forced him to re-evaluate his harsh judgments of Mr.
The USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in Flushing Meadows is a very nice facility, but it is nowhere close to where I live or work. This includes clear signage throughout your journey, especially at stations, not to mention clear announcements of station stops. Exasperating the situation is that there are, at minimum, three waiting areas: one each for LIRR, Amtrak and NJ Transit.
As update occur based on the elevators coming in an out of service, I’ll update the map. In addition to the folded version, 300 pristine, unfolded press sheets of the night map are available for purchase at the Transit Museum Annex for $20 each. This is the sixth installment of my Accessible Transit Map series – an unofficial map, not sanctioned by the MTA or NYCTA. There is no central waiting room such as at Grand Central (not to mention a lack of any celebration of entry or exit which arriving and departing at Grand Central) and the station spans two floors (not counting the track level). I decided to rectify the situation by editing the maps of major metropolitan transportation systems, in order to create a map for those who are not represented on the official map. The LIRR isn’t quite the SUPERTRAIN but the trip was only 12 minutes, considerably shorter then the estimated 90 minutes by subway.
