Transit nerd alert

I'm fascinated by the different ways we have of visually depicting the same underground system of subways. It's a great, concrete example of how subjective that modeling of the physical world can be at times. Being a writer, ostensibly of nonfiction, I see parallels with my work. What do you highlight? What do you downplay? All that said, check out the NYC subway redesign that Time Out New York features this week. It's called KICK, and while it may not include uptown Manhattan or much of the outerboroughs, it's a great taste of something new.
