The New NYC Subway Map

The MTA just released the newly designed subway map for the city that will be coming out next month and so far it looks cleaner and more spacey than the last design which lasted for more than than a decade.

I didn’t know about it until now that we had that map for so long. Anyway the way it looks is good but the only problems I have with this is that it falling into that dumb 3d gimmick if you look into the lines and added the shadow to make them pop out. The next problem is how the represented the parks. With green turned to brownish-olive. Parks and forests are always represented as green. The MTA has turned our parks into deserts and beaches.

One good upside is that they included city island into the map and a better… no Staten Island still looks bad. You know what would look better? If the map was designed by these guys.
