Peace

“For last year’s words belong to last year’s language
And next year’s words await another voice.
And to make an end is to make a beginning.”
– T.S. Eliot

Best wishes to you and yours for peace, health and happiness in the new year. Let’s strive to make 2018 everything that is truly possible.

NYC Travel Time > A Subway Map Redesign That Works

 

Credit: Nate Parrott

Designer Nate Parrott created his own interactive subway map that shows you exactly how long it takes to get between stops. Click on your home station, and the entire map reorients to show you how many minutes it will take you to reach every other stop on the map. From there, you can filter by weekday rush hour, weekday late night, or weekend afternoon.
