Not surprisingly based on what lives there, it turns out that all the subway systems in the world look a lot like a group of nefarious single-celled organisms when presented together. Maybe that’s what’s causing all those sick passengers.
Artist and urban planner Neil Freeman made line drawings of all of the world’s “high-capacity, grade-separated heavy rail” systems for a 29 by 23-inch black-and-white poster that will set you back a mere $20.
Not only will the poster make a great NYC-themed holiday gift for someone on your list, but it also functions as an incredibly difficult game of “Where’s Waldo’s Subway Stop?” It took us a solid five minutes to identify the New York subway, but see if you can do any better.
Hint: The transit networks are organized from largest and most complicated to the simplest. (You can find the answer here.)
