New York City MTA Gets a Facelift

While there are no shortage of iPhone apps to help make ones way around the city, there's something to be said for a physical map.

The Metropolitan Transit Authority has unveiled the new transit map design for Manhattan and outlying boroughs. I've always been a sucker for well-laid out maps, and this one is no exception. The NYTimes has a nice infographic showing the progression of changes in the map since 1968, which does a good job showing how trends have changed the areas of emphasis in the subway map.
