Along with the map, a subway directory was unveiled. This specific one showed how to get from 57th Street to the other subway stations in the system in an alphabetical listing.
Six further editions were produced from to , with extensive changes. Yunich was formerly an executive at Macy's department store, and brought an explicit intention to 'sell' the subway to riders.
The Better? A New York City Subway Map Retrospective" at the Cityana Gallery run by Benjamin Blom, exhibiting the committee's latest prototype map and offering a questionnaire for testing public reaction. This was exhibited at the Cooper Union in April, when Tauranac debated with Massimo Vignelli in a public battle between the two schools of map-making.
Tauranac led a person committee that comprised TA staff and members of the public in addition to the three staff at Michael Hertz Associates. He also organised and coordinated the contributions of everybody in the group and liaised with TA and MTA staff to get approvals and funding and then to ensure that all the station and car signs in the subway network were changed to match the color scheme of the new map when it was launched in June He also defended the map in public debate with Massimo Vignelli in April and December Current map[ edit ] The most recent official maps of the subway system are not geographically accurate due to the complexity of the system e.
However, the New York City Subway map is an anomaly among subway maps around the world, in that it shows city streets, parks, and neighborhoods juxtaposed among curved subway lines, whereas other subway maps like the London Underground map do not show such aboveground features and show subway lines as straight and at or degree angles.
Among these are works by Fadeout Design and by Alexander Chen. Travel Stations " are electronic maps located in stations that make use of touchscreen technology to help subway patrons plan trips.
Such maps have been increasingly prevalent. They invited Vignelli Associates comprising at that time Massimo Vignelli, Yoshiki Waterhouse, and Beatriz Cifuentes to develop a digital version of the map.
It was the first Super Bowl played outdoors in a cold-weather city. Called the "Regional Transit Diagram", the map was initially produced specifically for Super Bowl XLVIII, and according to the MTA, "shows all inter-connections between the regional transit services, and highlights with a football icon those areas where Super Bowl related events will occur on both sides of the Hudson River.
The diagram will appear on all transit provider websites, as well as on Super Bowl websites, guides, publications, mobile apps, and folding pocket maps.
For the first time since , the MTA issued a Vignelli map on paper. As of September [update] , the diagram is still updated online and remains accessible on the MTA's website.

From to , subway routes on the official subway map were drawn either in a single color or in three colors, which corresponded to the company that the route operated on — the IRT, BMT, or IND. In , a major review of wayfinding was triggered by the combination of two things: the large influx of visitors for the New York World's Fair , which made the subway and bus maps confusing to some visitors; and the connection of the BMT and IND networks through the 60th Street Tunnel Connection and the soon-to-be-opened Chrystie Street Connection , which rendered the three-color scheme unworkable.
The winners of the competition were R. Goldstein reported in June ,  and two of his prototype maps were combined by the TA Designs Division, and the result passed to Diamond Packaging, who refined the design and printed the NYCTA's first route-colored subway map in November Those colors were inherited by Unimark International and used in the famous Vignelli map.
Because the control tower only needs to know where trains are and where they are going the track maps are even simpler than subway route maps. Additionally Robert Marrero designed his own map called Stations, Miles with a cleaner design ethos using 90 and 45 degree angles. In my monk-like research into all things unbuilt I have also found may fan sketches of sections of the subway to show proposed lines. But all of these maps left me wanting; they are still diagrams that have no accurate geography to understand where the trains, tracks, and stations really are.
As I am always tinkering with ideas to expand the subway I found these inaccuracies too limiting and set out to draw my own track map as accurate as possible. Collecting every historical map I could find, using GIS data, satellite imagery both current and historic , YouTube videos of fan trips, my own observations looking out the window of trains through tunnels, and talking to retired track workers I was able to draw what I believe to be the most accurate track map of the NYC Subway ever.
While the map is geographically accurate at this scale tracks had to be spaced far enough apart to read correctly so lines are not perfect aligned with the widths of the streets. Also some train yards have been truncated to fit within the geographical boundaries of the map.
