Greater City Providence

Improbable subway maps


I love maps and I love transit and I love transit maps and I love this! Artists Rob and Damia Stewart have created a series of subway maps for locations across New England. Locations that are rather unlikely to see subway service anytime in the next century or two. In addition to the Cape & Islands poster seen above their maps include stand alone maps for the Vineyard and Nantucket; maps of Northampton/Amherst, MA (the couple’s hometown); and Manchester, VT.

18″ x 24″ prints of the maps are available on their website. I’ve already ordered the Cape & Islands one for myself and love that there is a Nickerson stop on the red line. 🙂
