    Thanks, Benjamin. That looks familiar too. I got all the images (except the one displayed in the lefthand column) from the Historical Maps page of the fascinating website nycsubway.org. It’s a browser’s paradise.

  2. I don’t disagree with much of what you say here, but as an FYI, the link to the 1968 map in your post isn’t to an actual image of the 1968 map, but rather to a digital reproduction of the service patterns. The 1968 subway map looked like this, and Vignelli’s 1972 map wasn’t a radical departure from that ’68 map.
