SONG: Angelika by Devendra Banhart
PLACE: Bedroom in Brooklyn
I was on the G and something made me do a double-take. The MTA has updated the subway map! No big Vignelli redesign, but simply another iteration on the 1979 map. I wonder if people will gripe over taking out major bus transfers, but doubtful. People who use buses have the subway map memorized, and everyone else is a tourist or a newbie New Yorker and seldom use that info anyway. All in all it, much simpler so I like. Here's a before and after of the maps and a NYT article on the changes.
I've also started a photo project taking pictures of people with collegiate t-shirts. Will post the photos and a map describing found location and respective colleges.
